Through the Diabetes Fonds Fellowships, the Dutch Diabetes Research Foundation (DDRF) encourages promising scientists to accelerate their scientific career, or establish themselves, in the field of diabetes research.
The Diabetes Fonds Fellowships provide two types of funding:
Diabetes Fonds Junior Fellowships
Available for junior researchers who have the ambition to accelerate their career in diabetes research and do so in close collaboration with an established scientist.
In 2023 we aim to support two Diabetes Fonds Junior Fellowships with a maximum of € 300.000 each for a maximum of 4 years.
Junior Fellowship: Application form (Letter of Intent)
Diabetes Fonds Senior Fellowships
Available for senior researchers who have the ambition to further their career in diabetes research and are close to start their own research group.
In 2023 we aim to support two Diabetes Fonds Senior Fellowships with a maximum of € 350.000 for a maximum of 4 years.
Senior Fellowship: Application form (Letter of Intent)
Applicants need to be affiliated to a university, academic centre, university of applied sciences, medical centre or non-profit research institute.
The Diabetes Fonds Fellowships are not only available for candidates who want to perform diabetes research in (bio)medical disciplines. We also encourage candidates from other disciplines to apply (e.g. candidates with a background in psychology, sociology or technology). However, the research proposal needs to have a direct focus on diabetes and the applicant must have the ambition to commit to the diabetes research field.
Instructions and details on the criteria and the procedure can be found in the Diabetes Fonds Fellowships Program Description. To assess whether you are eligible for a Junior or Senior Diabetes Fonds Fellowship, please read the Fellowships Eligibility Criteria.
There will be an online meeting to explain the procedure in more detail and to give tips and tricks for writing the proposal. Attendance is highly recommended. Please confirm your presence by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
