Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds (BIF) PhD Fellowships

The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds (BIF) awards PhD fellowships of 2 to 3.5 years to outstanding junior scientists worldwide who wish to pursue an ambitious PhD project in basic biomedical research in an internationally leading laboratory.

The peer-review selection process evaluates the applicant’s achievements, as well as the scientific quality of the project and host laboratory. The process is highly competitive, with less than 10% of applicants receiving a fellowship.

On top of the monthly stipend, successful applicants will receive travel allowances, individual and personal support, seminars and a worldwide network of fellows and alumni.

There are three application deadlines each year: 1 February, 1 June, 1 October.
