The University of Twente Funds Foundation is to present the Marina van Damme Scholarship at the annual Innovation Lecture.
This scholarship, which consists of a cash prize (€ 9,000) and a certificate, has been made possible by a donation from Dr M.A. van Damme-Van Weele. She obtained a PhD on 3 June 1965, the first doctorate to be awarded by the former Twente Technical College. The scholarship winner has three years in which to spend the money on the further development of her career. This could involve expanding her knowledge and exploring issues in greater depth, for example, or completing a study, internship or project outside the Netherlands.
The 2016 winner was: Ms. B. Ataoglu, MSc.
