NWO specifies current provision for pregnant applicants in official compensation scheme
NWO’s 'Compensation scheme for parental leave’ specifies when and how applicants for a personal grant can qualify for alternative handling of their application. This provision is intended for applicants who are unable to participate in the regular evaluation procedure because they are on parental leave. NWO is thus trying to promote equal opportunities for this group to receive grants and retain talented researchers for science. The compensation scheme applies to the ‘Talent Scheme’ and ‘Rubicon’ programmes.
