Animal behaviour - Dobberke Foundation for Comparative Psychology 2018
The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) invites applications for grants from the Dr. J.L. Dobberke Foundation. Deadline of submissions is October 15, 2018. The Dobberke Foundation funds research in the fields of behavioural biology and comparative psychology, in so far as such research focuses on animal behaviour. The Foundation also awards grants to cover the cost of study trips, the organisation of symposiums, and publications. Every year a budget of € 46,000 is available.
The size of the funding award will be established on a case-by-case basis, but is generally between € 2,000 and € 6,000. In rare cases, applicants can apply for a maximum of € 10,000.
The Dr. J.L. Dobberke Foundation for Comparative Psychology was established by Ms S.L. van Stolk in 1950 and was transferred to the Academy in 2005. The Foundation is named after Dr J.L. Dobberke, a researcher who studied animal behaviour.
