Hestia – Refugees in Science Impuls

The ‘Refugees in Science’ pilot programme that was first launched in 2018 is set to continue in 2019 and 2020 under the name Hestia – Refugees in Science Scheme. On 4 June, NWO announced the new call for 2019.

Through the Hestia – Refugees in Science Impuls, NWO will provide funding for the appointment of academics who have fled their home country and wish to continue their scientific career in the Netherlands.

Candidates must hold a master’s degree or a doctorate and must have been granted refugee status in the Netherlands.

The pilot was developed in consultation with the Young Academy, KNAW and the Foundation for Refugee Students UAF.
