How to apply

If you meet all the condition, you can start up an application procedure with us.

  1. Fill in the web form (if there are problems with Firefox, try a different browser)
  2. Once you have submitted the web form, you will receive an email from us, roughly one working day later, containing the Grant Agreement and a Letter of Approval. You should then send the following documents, before the congress starts, to  studentexchange [at] (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl):
    • The Grant Agreement, signed by you. Read that document carefully: it contains the conditions of the grant.
    • A Letter of Approval , filled in and signed, from your study advisor at Radboud University or your faculty’s International Office. The declaration form should indicate the relevance of the project for your study. This declaration will also be sent to you by email after you have completed the web form.

Once we have received the documents, it can take around 5 working days for us to process them. As soon as we've processed the documents, we'll send you an email about your application and whether it's been approved.

How to complete the application

After the conference is finished, we would like to receive within one month, through studentexchange [at] (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl), the following document:

  • Proof of participation (name badge, for example, or a certificate of participation).

Important: the proof of participation must be sent within one month from the end of the congress. If you are going to be travelling after the congress, it's your responsibility to see that the document is submitted on time.

Once we have received the proof of participation, and as long as you meet the conditions, we will send you a definite confirmation of allocation of the grant by email as soon as possible. The amount of the grant will then be transferred to your bank account within 4 weeks.

Premature termination of stay abroad

If, due to special circumstances, you are obliged to cut short your stay abroad, through no fault of your own, please get in touch with us through: studentexchange [at] (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl)


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with Student Life and International Mobility through studentexchange [at] (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl)

In terms of the application period, you can submit an application at any time, as long as it is before the congress and you have completed the whole application (that means the online application form plus the documents required) no later than one day before the conference starts. No applications will be processed afterwards.
