Eight hundred K for GUIDE’s top PhD students

11 August 2010

Ten research schools and graduate schools in the Netherlands have each been awarded a grant of EUR 800,000 by the Graduate Programme of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). In Groningen, this grant for talented young researchers will go to GUIDE, part of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences of the University Medical Center Groningen. The N.W. Posthumus Institute, a national research school in which the University of Groningen participates, will also receive EUR 800,000.

Research schools and graduate schools offer coherent Master’s and PhD programmes. They have been founded to provide outstanding teaching and research environments for the most talented students interested in an academic career. The schools have been designed in line with the most successful global initiatives.
Local and national research schools and graduate schools can apply for funding within the framework of the Graduate Programme and a total of 29 schools did so. Of those, ten schools have now received funding to appoint four PhD students.
