Neys - van Hoogstraten Fund

The Neys - van Hoogstraten Fund promotes socioeconomic research with a gender lens on food security of households and nutritional security of vulnerable groups in a number of countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia.

Thanks to the Neys - van Hoogstraten Fund, MSc and PhD students and postdocs can receive support for costs related to their research. Preference is given to interdisciplinary research and research involving a research institute in the region. A gender lens must be applied in every research project.

Please note: the fund only supports projects and people associated with WUR and is not open to donations from third parties.
