Colloquia for doctoral students (DoHa)

The colloquia for doctoral students are intended as an academic forum where doctoral and post-doctoral students can present their research to each other under the supervision of academic specialists.
The Union for the Dutch Language supports these meetings financially.

Target group
Researchers who belong to a department of Dutch abroad and who are preparing for their doctorate or for their qualification can participate in these colloquia.

What for?
Young researchers get the opportunity to present their research to a critical audience during a meeting. A colloquium motivates them to pursue their work for their PhD and helps to further improve the quality of Dutch studies in higher education abroad.

The colloquium will be organised directly by an academic network or by a department of Dutch under the umbrella of an academic network. The funding can be applied for once every two years by the same region.

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. For more information, please have a look at the original text in Dutch.
