Apply for the Dutch subsidy for Virtual International Collaboration Projects (VIS)

28 August 2023

In a Virtual International Cooperation Project (VIS) Dutch and foreign students work together remotely on a project that links local issues to an international perspective. 

If you are a lecturer or educationalist and would like to develop a VIS project for students from Leiden and a university abroad, you can submit a grant application until Monday 18 September 09:00 using this form. If your project proposal is approved, the University will receive €15,000 from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport to free up your schedule to give you time to develop the project.  

How to apply

  • Get written permission from your institute/supervisor and Director for Education 
  • Fill in this form. Please note: the answers to the questions must be provided in Dutch. 
  • Send the form together with the written permission to Kathelijne Smits by Monday 18 September 09:00.
  • Applications will be assessed in order of receipt – the sooner you apply, the greater your chance of being awarded the grant.
