The Professor de Winter Scholarship is provided by the inheritors of Professor de Winter and his wife. Professor de Winter was one of the founders of the research and education department of the ‘Technische Hogeschool Twente’ – which later became the University of Twente. In 1969 he became the first career counselor of Technical Physics. At that time, he had already been appointed as professor of Applied Physics at the department of Electrical Engineering.
Professor de Winter and Mrs. de Winter were highly involved in UT Physics programmes and with ‘their’ students. Their heirs continue to be involved in their honour by awarding a scholarship of € 7,500. The next Professor de Winter scholarship is available for the academic year 2018/19.
- € 7,500 per year for the full duration of your Master's programme.
