Offers a grant in support of research (such as dissertation or archival research) in the Netherlands or Belgium on any subject within Netherlandic Studies. Under exceptional circumstances, an additional scholarship may be awarded. The field is broadly defined and may include research on, for example, aspects of Dutch/Netherlandish culture as they relate to Indonesia or South Africa, or research on the Afrikaans language. The grant is intended for citizens or residents of the United States who study or teach at an American university. Preference is given to those scholars who do not receive research support from their home institution.
