Researchers who have obtained their PhD within the last 15 years can apply for a Vici grant. There may be a possibility of an extension in some cases.  Importantly, a researcher may apply for a Vici grant on a maximum of three occasions. Therefore careful review of your idea is required, ensuring the best possible fit

What to apply for?

The maximum grant is 1.5 million euros for a period of five years.

When to apply?

The NWO Vici call for the 2017 round is expected to open at the end of January 2017 and the deadline for submission of pre-proposals is expected to be late in March 2017.
