Academic research is increasingly becoming dependent on extramural financial support. Various organizations and bodies subsidize or finance academic research. These web pages provide information about these bodies and the schemes they offer; it is classified under national, European and international grants schemes and funds. A separate page has been made for the European Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP7).
The grants desk helps users find their way through the myriad of schemes and funds that are available for financing research. Researchers do not have to tread this route themselves – VU University Amsterdam provides support for those looking and applying for research grants and during the projects themselves.
Students seeking information about grants and funds for studying, work placements or conference visits abroad should go to the grants page of the International Office.
