Grants and prizes

Research grants

One of the core activities of the ALCS is to encourage research. The ALCS sets aside part of the annual budget to promote scholarly study in the language, history, culture and society of the Low Countries. All ALCS members are welcome to apply for funding. Applications for co-operative projects which benefit the subject as a whole are particularly welcome.
