Support cancer research
The Nijbakker-Morra Foundation was founded in 1974 by Mrs. C.M. Nijbakker-Morra. Mr and Mrs Nijbakker decided to devote their entire legacy to cancer research, after their only daughter, Erica Joy Nijbakker, had died of cancer.
The Nijbakker-Morra Foundation supports persons who carry out cancer research by providing:
Student cash prizes of 2500 euros for the best theses – submission before 1 November 17.00 hours (annually)
Internship scholarships Master students – submission before 1 April 17.00 (1st round) and before 1 October 17.00 (2nd round)
Stipendia researchers – submission before 1 December 17.00 (annual)
Project grants – we stopped this in 2019.
In these times of Corona, we use the same deadlines as other years.
You can apply for an internship grant or stipend if you have a commitment from the host institute that you are welcome.
