Successful applicants will receive reimbursement for accommodation, travel costs, plus a per diem to cover living expenses during their visit.

In addition, they will be encouraged to participate in Berlin Brain Days (911 December 2009), an annual event that brings together more than 200 doctoral students from across the neurosciences to present and discuss their work with senior international faculty.

In order to be eligible for this award you need to meet the basic eligibility criteria for applying to the School’s doctoral program in 2010 or 2011 (in particular you need to have completed or be in the process of completing a Master’s or equivalent degree in an area of study relevant to the School).
