Project grant

This arrangement is meant to support projects that help to improve the quality of Dutch tuition (as a foreign language) at an academic level.

For whom?
Departments of Dutch at universities and other institutes of higher education outside the Dutch-language area.

What for?
This arrangement aims to support projects outside the Dutch-language area that help to promote the Dutch language and the practising of the language and that contribute to its continuation and the growth of higher-education courses in Dutch abroad, be it at a regional, a national or an international level. This is under the condition that these projects do not already receive funding from the Union for the Dutch Language in another way.
All applications will be judged by a selection committee.

More information
Applications must be submitted before 1 December, prior to the next budget year. Application forms have to be completed in Dutch. Forms in other languages will not be accepted.
