Leiden University Fund awards grants
Over thirty research projects have been awarded a grant from the Leiden University Fund (LUF). The academics each receive a sum of between 5,000 and 25,000 euros to conduct their research.
In the coming years, the recipients of the grants are, in part thanks to the grant, going to conduct research on a wide range of topics, such as Buddhism along the Silk Route, the diagnostics of encephalitis, and traces of Malaria in human skeletons. LUF’s contribution often forms a springboard to larger academic grants from, for instance, the NWO.
The project grants partly derive from donor funds within the LUF and from a collaboration with external funds: the Elise Mathilde Foundation Fund, the Gratama Foundation and the Packaging and Environment Foundation. A total of 105 grant requests were discussed and assessed by the Academic Expenditures committee of the LUF. Ultimately, 31 projects were selected. In total, they received a grant of 552,288 euros.
