HOW IT WORKS
It is to be expected that the survival of many animal species can only be guaranteed under conditions that are, to a greater or lesser extent, managed by human activity. The Lucie Burgers Foundation offers financial support for research projects that struggle to obtain support through the usual channels. The scientific relevance of the project is key.
HOW TO APPLY
The Lucie Burgers Foundation aims to provide financial support for research projects or parts thereof for which it isn’t easy to obtain financial support through the usual channels, e.g., additional support or research in preparation for a regular application (pilot projects). As the scientific interest of the project is our main goal, study placements are generally given a low priority. Applications from master’s students are also not accepted. Send an email to apply for funding. Applications are assessed twice a year, in May/June and December. The deadlines for applications are 30 April and 30 November.
Decisions on whether or not to grant financial support are reserved at all times for the board of the Lucie Burgers Foundation and are only taken according to a written board resolution to that effect. The Lucie Burgers Foundation does not use any powers of attorney or mandate in the sense of Article 3:60 of the Dutch Civil Code when providing support. No rights can be derived from previous commitments or discussions.
We are very grateful to people willing to support us in encouraging and facilitating animal behavioural research to advance knowledge of natural animal behaviour and ecology.

THE LUCIE BURGERS FOUNDATION
The Lucie Burgers Foundation was founded in 1980 and is named after Lucie Burgers, the daughter of Johan Burgers, the founder of Royal Burgers’ Zoo. Together with Reinier van Hooff, Lucie Burgers was the second generation to manage this family company. Lucie Burgers had an exceptional knowledge of animals and was a very proactive woman.
