Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds Biosciences PhD Fellowships
The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds awards PhD fellowships to outstanding junior scientists who wish to pursue an ambitious PhD project of approximately three years in basic biomedical research.
The fellowship comprises a competitive monthly stipend that is initially granted for two years and that can be extended for up to another twelve months. Participation in international scientific conferences is also supported. In addition, fellowship holders are offered personal support, seminars to discuss their projects, communication training and alumni meetings, and thus can become part of a worldwide network.

The PhD project must be experimental, in the field of basic biomedical research and aimed at elucidating basic biological phenomena of human life and acquiring new scientific knowledge.
Applicants should be about to start their PhD programme or have started their PhD no more than six months before the relevant application deadline (1st February, 1st June, 1st October).
