The (NV)MS conference fund is created for NVMS members to promote the Dutch participation at international conferences. The scholarships are available to researchers (BSc, MSc, PhD, Post-docs (up to 2 years after receiving their PhD) who are members of the NVMS and hold at least a 0.5 FTE research position in the Netherlands. The applicant should hold the same research position during participation in the conference as the position during the application of the fund.

Evaluation committee for the period June 2017 to June 2020:
Arjen Gerssen (NVMS)
Michiel Akeroyd (DSM)
Simone Lemeer (UU)
