Support for the compatibility of studies/ work with parenthood

In an effort to improve the compatibility of parenthood and studies/ academic qualifications, students and young academics with at least one child are to receive a special incentive to finish their thesis, dissertation, or doctorate at the Faculty of Social Sciences. For this, eligible students will receive a two-month financial support of 350 Euro per month.

Eligible applicants are those that:


  • write their thesis within a (part) study program of the Social Science Faculty, or are being supervised by a member of the Social Science Faculty
  • have been accepted for writing their thesis
  • care for an underage child (under 16 years old) to a considerable extent
  • demonstrate a notable need


There is no legal entitlement.

In case of interest for the financial support for the compatibility of studies/ work with parenthood, please contact to us in person.
