Admission Criteria

INTERVICT's objectives are:
To promote and execute interdisciplinary research that can contribute to an evidence based body of knowledge on the empowerment and support of victims of crime and abuse of power through research and publication.

Applications include:

Work program

The candidate's research interests and activities during the visit should be in line with INTERVICT's mission, focal areas and competences. An applicant is required to submit a work program that should be no longer than three pages and comprise a short description of activities and goals, as well as a motivation for the proposed fellowship/scholarship at INTERVICT.


The candidate's work is of high quality, as indicated by his/her scientific past performance.

Financial responsibility

The Institute is not in a position to provide financial assistance to Visiting Fellows or Scholars. Visiting Fellows and Scholars pay a bench fee to assist in covering the cost of provision of facilities at the Institute, including computers, libraries (Tilburg University Library) and desk space ("Costs", see under Practical Matters). If extensive additional (i.e. computer or secretarial) support is required, this may be subject to an additional charge. A short budget plan with expected expenditures will be requested (see also "Costs", see under Practical Matters). All visitors must be able to assure the Institute that they have the means to support themselves for the whole of their stay (e.g. proof of scholarship/copies of labor agreement/bank statement/pay slip).


Visiting Fellows and Scholars must have a reasonably high proficiency in spoken and written English. If English is the applicant's second language, applicants are requested to demonstrate proficiency with a certificate of TOEFL score 250 or IELTS level 7.

How to apply

Applications can be made at any time, but at least 4 months prior to the date of intended arrival. Because office space is limited, early application is advised. The Tilburg Law School will assist in applying for visa and/or resident permits. Please be aware that this application procedure itself may take up to 3 months. More information about visa / resident permits.

Provided the application falls within the scope of INTERVICT's remit and the applicant seems a reasonable prospect as a visitor, we will forward information on facilities, participation in the Institute's activities, visa/residence permit procedures etc. Please be aware that to be granted a residence permit you need to prove to have a minimum income of €670 net. This minimum will not be enough to provide for maintenance cost. For this you should take into account that you need an income of at least €1250 per month.
