Career support grants

The board of EWM The Netherlands has voted to make three small grants of up to €500 available to support the career development of its members. Should funds permit, more grants may be made available.

The grants form a pilot program, which will continue only if sufficient interest exists. The applications are considered on a continuous basis and upon the order received.

The purpose of the grants is to facilitate the participation of grantees to events significant to their career by covering expenses not otherwise covered by existing means. Examples of potential events can be training courses, conference attendance, collaboration visits or membership. Examples of costs that can be covered by the grants are expenses for accompanying children at events such as transportation or extra accommodation costs, expenses for additional care for children remaining behind, training fees, membership registrations, conference registrations etc.

  • It is required that the applicant justifies why no other funds could be found for the proposed expense.
  • Expenses must be documented by receipts. 
  • Members at any stage of their career may apply. The judging criteria are relevant to the applicant’s career.
  • Applicants are required to write a short paragraph explaining the impact of the proposed event to their career development. The budget should mention why other resources could not be secured for this expense.
