Three times a year the Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds awards approximately 15 scholarships for doctoral students in the field of biomedical basic research. The next deadline for applications will be June 1, 2005. The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds funds projects, which aim to elucidate basic phenomena of human life. Investigations on botanical and prokaryotic topics may be supported as well if they are of general biological importance whereas projects in the field of biotechnology as well as studies on the course of diseases of the treatment of symptoms are not eligible.
Applicants should not be older than 27 years, have achieved an excellent university degree (diploma or equivalent, state examinations) on natural sciences, veterinary medicine or pharmacy and should not have worked on their dissertation longer than six months. EU citizens will be funded worldwide whereas non-EU citizens have to carry out their project in an EU Member State. Scholarship holders
will be granted a lump sum between 1400 EUR and 1900 EUR monthly,
depending on the living costs of the relevant host country. Additionally the foundation will pay a lump sum of 100 EUR per month for project-related costs (books, travel expenses, etc.) and personal insurance as well as, where it is the case, a spouse allowance. There will be no financial support for children. In addition to the financial support every scholarship holder once a year receives the opportunity of attending an international conference and – with
support of the fonds – presenting the results of his research.
Furthermore it is expected that scholars participate in the yearly
seminar of Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds where they as well may present the actual results of their work.
