The program aims to contribute to increasing the number of female professors. Since its establishment in 2012, the Dutch fellowships have rewarded two women (fellows) every year for the excellence of their work, their courage and their commitment within the field of scientific research.
These fellowships worth 25,000 euros allow women to spend five months at NIAS to further their scientific work. The international and interdisciplinary environment inspires the generation of new approaches and ideas that can realize ground-breaking academic work. The fellowships are awarded to outstanding female scientists in the period up to ten years after their PhD within the field of Life Sciences.
