The grants for academic talent of the Leiden University Fund (LUF), varying roughly between €5,000 and €25,000, often function as an important springboard for submitting requests with NWO and other institutions.
The funding is available from a number of Named Funds of Leiden University Fund (LUF) as well as from the cooperation with the Gratama Foundation, the Elise Mathilde Foundation and SVM (Foundation for packaging and environment). These grants for academic talent are often an important step towards grants by NWO and other grant institutions
