Policy on life events

EHA has a policy on life events and eligibility. If you're submitting a grant application and the policy applies to your circumstances, you can ask us to extend the period of eligibility.

Pregnancy and children

For each child/pregnancy:

  • A mother can add 18 months to the time since PhD graduation
  • A father can add three months to the time since PhD graduation

Other life events

We can also extend the eligibility period due to other life events. This might be:

  • Military service
  • Disease
  • Lab closure
  • Another type of life event

In all cases, you'll need to provide a justification.

If you need help

If you have questions about policy or your eligibility, you can contact us at EHA-Grants@ecorys.com before submitting an application.
