Hello!

Next year I am going to start my Ph.D. at KU Leuven. My research is going to focus on the lymphatic system. Supervisor already asked me to search for suitable funding opportunities but I suck at it. I've already checked out the FWO, MSCA-ITN (but I cannot find the dates for 2021) and LE&RN. I am fairly frustrated and I don't know where to look for other grants. Find A Ph.D. doesn't help.

Any tips?
Thanks!

I am sorry you are going through the "traditional" dilemma. No funding means no PhD. In this stage of research where you are starting your career in research by pursuing a PhD, it should not be expected from you to find the funding. If the supervisor accepted you on condition you will find funding, it does not look for me like a real acceptance. If I were you, I would search for another opportunity and do not waste my time with this supervisor. It is like getting a job offer which states you are not going to get a salary unless you directly bring profit to the company.
