We are pleased to inform you that the call for the “Kootstra Talent Fellowship” (KTF), round Fall 2021 is open. The application deadline is 1 October 2021.

The KTF aims to facilitate talented researchers to develop their own research ideas and CV, and subsequently help increase their chances of obtaining personal grants at external funding agencies.

The call is open to:

  • researchers who obtained their PhD degree at the FHML of Maastricht University within one year of the application deadline, or
