Kootstra Talent Fellowship - Deadline May 1, 2018

In the period from 2004 to 2006, the "Kootstra Fellowship" and the "Talent voor de Toekomst" grants were awarded at respectively the Faculty of Medicine (FdG) and the Faculty of Health Sciences (FdGW).

Since 2007, after the merger between the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Health Sciences to the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), the various talent fellowships have been merged into the 'Kootstra Talent Fellowship' (KTF).

The fellowship is named after Prof.dr. Gauke Kootstra, professor of "General Surgery" and chairman of the Department of General Surgery at the Academic Hospital Maastricht from 1991-2000. Prof. Kootstra was dean of the Faculty of Medicine in the period between 1999-2002.

The Board of the Maastricht UMC+ has means available in 2018 to develop talent amongst young scientific researchers. These means have been invested in the so-called “Kootstra-Talent Fellowship Programme’’.

The program has one target group, being "Talented Future Postdocs". The grant has two rounds per year announced in a call. The closing dates for submitting applications are in 2018, May 1 and October 1 respectively.
