Novo awards scholarships to 43 research students

BAGSVAERD, DENMARK: 43 of Denmark’s most talented students in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical sciences will be awarded Novo scholarships, the largest of their kind in Denmark. The Novo Scholarships are funded jointly by Novozymes and Novo Nordisk. A total of kr2.6 million is being awarded this year, divided into scholarships of up to kr84,000 each to supplement the students’ standard grants while they are writing their theses so that they do not need to work alongside their studies. This is the 16th year that the scholarships have been awarded, and altogether more than kr30 million has now been awarded to more than 500 promising young researchers.

“Denmark’s future depends on high academic standards, and we face stiff competition from other countries pushing the natural sciences. We must learn how to nurture the wealth of research talent to be found in Denmark. The Novo Scholarships are a good example of this and can inspire more young people to become interested in the natural sciences.” said Morten Ostergaard, Minister for Research, Innovation and Higher Education, Denmark. The scholarships will be presented at Novozymes and Novo Nordisk by Hans Muller Pedersen, Deputy Director General, Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, on behalf of the Minister for Research, Innovation and Higher Education.
