for the Donders Graduate School for Cognitive Neuroscience
August 13 2009
On August 12 a delegation from the Donders Institute (Peter Hagoort, Ruud Meulenbroek, Arno Koning and Arjan Vink) went to NWO in the Hague to receive this good news from the Dutch Educational Minister Plasterk that the grant for 'The 'Donders Graduate School for Cognitive Neuroscience' (DGCN) proposal was awarded.
The grant of 800.000 euro (four PhD positions) not only implied important recognition of the Donders Institute as a top-quality research institute that functions as a Graduate School in which Master's and PhD students are being trained succesfully, but also funding for four PhD projects 'new style'. Both students from within the MSc CNS programme of the Radboud University and CNS students from outside Nijmegen could apply for these projects.
