Aspasia Fund and Incentive Fund

Dear ladies,

With this message I would like to inform you about the next deadline for applications for the UT’s Aspasia Fund and Incentive Fund.

Both funds are to support female talent- and career development; the Aspasia fund is especially targeted at female researchers who have not yet reached top level: i.e. postdocs, assistant professors and associate professors. Please note, only applications that meet the criteria are admissible for assessment by the ambassador network.

For both funds the deadline for sending in applications is Friday September 2, 2013. 

Applications for both funds can be sent by email to

For criteria and other details, please check the funds’ websites:

In addition:

Another option in support of female talent is offered by the LNVH (National Network Female Professors): Distinguished Women Scientists Fund (DWSF)

LNVH established the Distinguished Women Scientists Fund in 2012. Till  2015, female postdocs working in the Netherlands can benefit from travel grants, for three years after promotion (with an extension clause).

Deadline for submission of applications is: October 1, 2013.

Criteria  and the application form can be found here:
