Are you planning a study programme, internship or research project abroad and you’re not eligible for an Erasmus or Holland Scholarship grant? In that case, you might apply for a grant from the Radboud University Profiling Fund – the Individual Travel Grant (IRS).
This grant is intended as compensation for the extra expenses you have when you go abroad for a study period. Such expenses might include tickets, visum, accommodation rental and vaccinations. If no such extra expenses are involved, for example in the case of a virtual study exchange, you won’t be eligible for the grant. Also, your study programme or faculty will have to approve the trip, because it is of essential importance that your exchange is relevant to your study.
There are certain conditions you have to meet if you want to be eligible for an Individual Travel Grant for studies, internship or research abroad:
- you are registered as a student (full-time) in a bachelor or Master’s study programme at Radboud University;
- your exchange programme will last for at least 2 months (consecutive);
- your exchange programme is abroad;
- you are not receiving an Erasmus grant, Holland Scholarship Programme grant or a grant from the Radboud Honours Academy;
- you will be earning course credits;
- You have not yet received a Holland Scholarship or Individual Travel Grant for study, (medical) internship or research during your current study cycle;
- you will be leaving in more than 2 weeks.
The compensation amounts to 200 euros a month for a stay in Europe, and 300 euros a month outside Europe. The amount of the grant you ultimately receive will be calculated based on the number of days of your study-related stay abroad. The compensation is for a maximum of 4 months.
Start your application for a stay abroad through your Osiris account. As soon as your faculty’s International Office has provisionally approved your application, you will automatically receive an email with further instructions for your grant application. The grant applications are open every year somewhere around April for the subsequent academic year. So you will receive the email with further instructions for your grant application around April. If April has already passed or you’re going abroad in the current academic year, you will receive the email with instructions for your grant application roughly one working day after your stay abroad has been approved in Osiris.
There is a link to a web form in the email with additional explanation about the grant application. Fill in the web form fully.
