Comenius Programme

The Comenius grants enable teaching staff in the Netherlands to put their ideas about how to innovate education into practice. The Dutch government aims to contribute to more widely varied careers for teaching staff and researchers in universities and universities of applied sciences by openly recognising excellent and inspired teaching. 

There are three types of Comenius grants for teaching staff depending on their experience:

  • Teaching Fellow (> 2 years of experience), see details here
  • Senior Fellow (> 5 years of experience, one application per faculty) see details here;
  • Leadership Fellow (> 7 years of experience, one application per institution) see details here.
