Distinguished Women Scientists Fund DWSF 2017

In 2012 the Dutch Network of Women Professors created the Distinguished Women Scientists Fund, a travel grant (max. 1500 euro) for female postdocs - up to 3 years after promotion and working and residing in the Netherlands - who wish to travel abroad in the framework of their discipline.

The LNVH board is pleased to announce the 2017 Distinghuished Women Scientists Fund. This travel grant allows the laureates to travel abroad for their research.
