Lundbeck Foundation scholar stipends in pharmaceutical neuroscience

Under the auspices of the Drug Research Academy

For the year 2021/22, under condition that our application is approved, the Lundbeck Foundation supports 3 scholarships in pharmaceutical neuroscience, under the auspices of the Drug Research Academy, to support pre-graduate training of some of the best master degree students enrolled at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. The purpose is to strengthen research skills by extending the master degree studies by six months dedicated to a research project. The scholarships should be initiated no later than 1 February 2022.

The Lundbeck Foundation scholar stipend is a 6-month scholarship as an extension of the master degree studies within the field of pharmaceutical neuroscience. The scholarship can be combined with the master thesis project either before or after the master thesis project period. The applicant must clearly state that they plan an extension of the master degree studies and that the applicant is therefore still enrolled at the University.

The project description should include background, aim/hypothesis, project plan, time plan and references. If the scholarship period is combined with the master thesis project it should include a time plan for both parts as well as the proposed progress obtained by the additional months provided by the scholarship.
