Rules and regulations
To apply for a Working Grant you must fill in an "application form".
There are four assessments per year, i.e. one each quarter. Applicants will be informed of the results of the assessment of their proposition at the latest three months after having made their application. The budget that is available for Working Grants over the entire year is divided over four envelopes, one for each quarter. These envelopes are divided per quarter over the selected applications. If the envelope is not entirely spent in one quarter, the money that is left is transferred to the next quarter. Therefore it is a "rolling fund". See 'timing'.
