Molecular Mechanisms of Disease (MMD) Scholarships, Radboud University, The Netherlands

MSc MMD scholarships
In the 2006 - 2008 period, 9 talented students from outside the EER received financial support from our MMD Study Fund. For the 2009 curriculum year, 6 talented non-EER students have been selected that receive full scholarships covering all study and living costs. These students come from Turkey, India, Ethiopia, and Zambia.

For the 2010 curriculum year, we will also select 6 non-EER students that will receive a full scholarship. Candidates for the MMD scholarship however must apply before 1 December 2009 and thereby can also apply for HFP or NFP fellowships (deadlines 1 February and 1 March 2010 respectively).

PhD positions in the NCMLS graduate school
Approximately 160 PhD students are part of the Nijmegen Centre for Molecular Life Sciences graduate school. Each year, more than 40 PhD positions become available. MSc MMD graduates are prime candidates for these PhD positions, which have been written by one of the 40 Principal Investigators of the NCMLS.

Personal PhD grants
A successful research career starts when a masters student writes his/her own research project. The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre has provided 3 PhD grants for the best projects written by Molecular Mechanisms of Disease (MMD) or Biomedical Science (BMS) students that started their masters in 2007. The selected students will start their projects in September of 2009. Likewise, 3 PhD projects have been reserved for MMD and BMS students who have started their masters in 2008.

For the students starting their MMD or BMS masters in 2009 and thereafter, 6 PhD projects will be available on yearly basis.

Students who want to apply for (almost) full scholarships such as HSP, NFP and MMD Study Fund should send in their application before 1 December 2009 (to start in September 2010).
