This fellowship aims to facilitate groundbreaking work in multiple disciplines by providing financial and institutional support for selected master projects. The fellowship offers two different types of application processes to suit the needs of various applicants.

1. Find your project (Project Submission by Supervisor)

Faculty members at Radboud University or Radboudumc have the chance to submit a project proposal specifically for a project. Interested students can then apply to work on these projects and will be selected based on an interview process.


6th October: Deadline for project proposal submissions from faculty.

Before 1st December: Deadline for student applications.

Before TBD: Interviews for selected students.

2. Apply with your project and supervisor (Joint submission by supervisor and student)

1st November: Deadline for project submissions from a supervisor-student team, including the CV of the student.

Before TBD:  Interviews of students

1st December: Decision on whether the project can be funded via the ELLIS Fellowship.
