The HRSMC Fellowship programme aims to support and reinforce high-quality research within the HRSMC. Within the programme, visits by outstanding foreign researchers (postdoc level and higher) to HRSMC-affiliated research groups are financed.

The HRSMC strongly welcomes applications, which

  •  stimulate cross-fertilization between differently-affiliated HRSMC research groups, involving 2 or more applicants from different groups, and
  • support fundamental, not directly application-driven research.

Who can apply?

Staff members and associated members (RU-members; as a second applicant) of the HRSMC with a permanent position and tenure trackers. Applications in which staff members of 2 or more different research groups are involved have a higher priority for funding (if other aspects are comparable).   

Applications can be submitted twice a year, before April 1 and before October 1 and can be sent to

After granting, the visit should start within one year of the date of approval. It is important to note that the visiting fellow should be employed by her/his home institution during the visit to The Netherlands. Exceptions on the starting date can be requested by email.
