The University of Twente Funds Foundation presents the Marina van Damme Scholarship during the afternoon programme of the Entrepeneurial Day in De Waaier.
This scholarship, which consists of a cash prize (€ 9,000) and a certificate, is 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 2017 winner was Moreblessings Shoko of the University of Cape Town.
