Check out our new funding opportunities

One of LUCIS’ main aims is to encourage and strengthen high-quality research about Islam and Muslim societies at Leiden University, and to advance cooperation and the exchange of knowledge between LUCIS members working in these areas.

Grants are intended to open up new areas of research in preparation for (major) research grant applications or to stimulate refereed publications. We especially welcome grant applications for high-profile international conferences of a cross-regional, cross-temporal and/or multi-disciplinary nature.

LUCIS offers three types of funding:*

1. LUCIS Conference Grant
2. LUCIS Guarantee Grant
3. LUCIS Seed & Breed Grant

* If you have alternative ideas about potential cooperation with LUCIS which fall outside the scope of the three types of funding stated above, please contact us at
