The NWO funds a MSc/PhD scholarship for epidemiologists. A total amount of 800,000 Euro has been made available. This grant will cover 3 years of PhD research, directly following a master. The intention is to meet the increasing demand for epidemiologists on the job market.
10 students will be selected to be put on rotation during their master's course in epidemiology. 5 of those will be selected for the PhD grant, based on academic merit and rotation results.
