Through discussion, shared experience and a few authentic examples, Tom De Moor can respond to frequently raised questions, debunk certain myths and provide tips & tricks in terms of content, structure and style.

A 2h workshop (14:00 – 16:00) will be organized afterwards on how to write your motivation letter for a grant application
A motivation letter is a personal document detailing your professional skills and reasons for applying for a grant. In contrast to a cover letter for paid job applications, a motivation letter focuses more on your personal story and details your interests, personality and motives for applying for a grant. Following these tips can help make your motivation letters stand out and convince decision-makers to consider your application further.
This workshop discusses authentic examples to spark an awareness of the proper style and structure of such a section. This workshop aims to help you make your motivation letter stand out and convince decision-makers to consider your application further.
