Scientific research

The De Cock-Hadders Foundation awards between €200,000 and €300,000 annually in grants to PhD research conducted at the FMS/UMCG. This contribution is exclusively intended to help PhD students to complete their scientific projects. Applications for a contribution must be submitted by PhD students themselves, using the form available on this website. The requested support must directly benefit their project (is intended for purchasing consumables and cannot be used for personnel costs or equipment) and should be in the range of €4,000 – €8,000. The awarded support can be capped by the Board. In addition to applications for funding from De Cock-Hadders, there is a limited opportunity to submit an application for the Winston Bakker Fund. The latter is exclusively intended for projects in the area of paediatric nephrology and pregnancy pathology. The period during which applications can be submitted runs from 1 August to 15 October 2021. As a rule, the results will be emailed to the applicants at the end of December.
