    Doctoral schools application for travel grants for international participation

    The PhD travel grant application is set up such that it's as compatible as possible with FWO applications for international mobility (www.fwo.be). 

    This implies that the PhD researcher

    • needs to provide similar data and hence can be seen as a training of applying for a mobility grant,
    • can use his/her FWO application directly (by including the pdf provided by the FWO) to demand matching funding.

    Copying and pasting of identical fields are necessary!

    Also note that other types of international mobility funding (e.g. innoviris ...) are also accepted.
