Zonta Mobility Scholarship for Female Master Students

The organization provides support for the stays abroad of two young female scientists.

Lekha Pezhumkattil, a student of the Master’s in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, has received a mobility grant of EUR 3,000 from the Zonta organization. Zonta is a social club that works for the interests of women and girls. The Zonta Mobility Prize is awarded every two years and is intended to give a young female scientist the opportunity to gain experience abroad. In the case of Pezhumkattil, the amount is to be used for her year abroad in Sweden:

Zonta announced a recognition award of EUR 250 for Nadine Freistetter for another excellent application. The student of the Master’s in Technical Environmental Management and Ecotoxicology was very happy to receive support for her stay abroad:
