The application must be submitted digitally. The online form will be available ​through KI Prisma during the application period, September 4 – 18, 2018. The application period closes 2.00 pm.

If you have previously been awarded a grant from the foundation, you are asked to enclose a research report with your current application, otherwise it won’t be taken into account. 


As from 2018, a report on the usage of the granted funds will be required. After the end of the term, you will need to login to Prisma and confirm whether you have used the money, or at least have started using the money, or not. If you have not used the money at all during the disposition period, these should be returned to the Foundations and Funds.

Reports are submitted via Prisma about 12 months after the money has been paid, except for travel benefits where reporting takes place approximately one month after the end of the term. You will receive an email notification when it is time to report.
