Selection Process for MD Fellowships

Once the Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds has ensured that the application is complete, it will be forwarded to members of the Board of Trustees, scientists of international repute. Usually based on an additional external peer review, the Board of Trustees will make the final decision on the allocation of the fellowship. The entire selection process may take up three to four months.

All applications are evaluated according to the following three criteria:

  1. the achievements of the applicant to date;
  2. the scientific quality of the proposed research project;
  3. the scientific standard of the laboratory in which the project is to be pursued.
