On 16 September, two chemistry students from the Groningen Faculty of Science and Engineering (formerly known as the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences) were awarded a Top sector Chemistry scholarship by the Association of the Dutch Chemical Industry (VNCI). Priscilla Pieters and Alfred Rodenboog will each receive a grant of EUR 5,000 per year for the duration of their Bachelor's degree programme. The VNCI awarded scholarships to a total of 42 first-year students at universities and universities of applied science. The scholarships are intended to help talented school-leavers to take degree programmes in chemistry.
In addition, four first-year chemistry students were awarded a Backer grant. This grant, which is named after the Groningen chemist Hilmar Johannes Backer , is only presented to students of our Faculty. Harmen Sikkema, Rob Lammers, Christian Bohmer and Taco Tjalma will all receive EUR 1,835 (the equivalent of the tuit ion fee for the first academic year), on the condition that they pass the first year of the programme in one year. Grants from the Backer fund are not awarded on the basis of school achievements, but for their letter of motivation.
