Grants and fellowships

Procedure for signing grant applications

Are you applying for a fellowship, project or grant and the application needs to be signed on behalf of KU Leuven? Then keep in mind that:

  • Every document, in this case your entire application including the budget proposal, that is signed on behalf of the university has to be reviewed for compliance with legal, fiscal and financial requirements.
  • Most staff members cannot sign on behalf of KU Leuven. The principal signatories are the Rector and the Managing Director.

Therefore we kindly urge you to contact the Research Coordination Office at your earliest convenience and no later than 10 days before the deadline!
