The Marina van Damme Scholarship is awarded each year to a successful University of Twente alumna. This scholarship, consisting of cash amounting to €9,000 and an award, is made possible thanks to a donation by Dr. ir. M.A. van Damme-Van Weele. She was the first student to obtain a PhD at the former Technical University College Twente in 1965.
The winner of the scholarship has four years to spend the amount on further developing her career. Such as by deepening or increasing her knowledge or an international orientation in the form of a study programme, internship or project.
