LUF-beurs Prof.dr. A.E. Meinders Fonds

Created on:

February 6, 2024

Be aware: grant open to both Dutch and English speaking individuals!

LUF scholarships from the Prof. Dr. A.E. Meinders Fund provide support to talented students and PhD candidates in the field of internal medicine. These scholarships are intended for conducting scientific research, such as a portion of a doctoral study or a scientific internship, with a focus on patient care abroad. Preference is given to clinicians over “laboratory assistants.”

The target audience comprises motivated students and PhD candidates in internal medicine or biomedical sciences, provided they are supervised within the field of internal medicine. Candidates should be curious, entrepreneurial, and enthusiastic. Those with a demonstrable broad interest and who distinguish themselves in areas other than medicine stand a better chance of receiving a scholarship.

Key points regarding applications are as follows:

  • There are two funding rounds per year with deadlines on April 1 and October 1.
  • The scholarship amounts can go up to 10,000 euros.
  • The application process requires filling out the application form, available on JotForm:
  • For more information or inquiries, interested individuals can contact the Secretariat for Purpose Allocation at LUF via
