The Boehringer Ingelheim Fund awards stipends to exceptional students of medicine to support the writing of a dissertation. A monthly contribution of between 900 and 1200 Euros will be paid for a duration of 10 to 12 months. This is aimed at enabling students to carry out an experimental piece of work in the area of biomedical research. The work must be completed at an institution other than the home institution of the recipient.
Eligible candidates are medical students having passed the first part of the state physician's examination (Ärztlichen Prüfung) with 2.0 or better. The recipient must be under 25.
