Every candidate is required to be nominated by two professors at Dutch universities or research institutes.

The grant is intended to finance the cost of living, accommodation, travel and any ancillary expenses incurred abroad rather than the cost of the research as such.

Further details of the application procedure can be found on the Niels Stensen Fellowship website.

  • Candidates must be socially committed and must demonstrate this in a paper that describes how their research relates to society.
  • Their research must be carried out at a reputable university or institute abroad, where the candidate has not conducted research or studied before.
  • Their research project is to start between 1 January 2021 and 1 September 2021.
