Pélican Grant

Fondation du Pélican de Mie et Pierre Hippert-Faber

Scholarships for research in biomedicine or biotechnology. 


Every year, since 2011, the Fondation du Pélican grants scholarships towards three promising graduate students from the doctoral School for Systems and Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Luxembourg.


The doctoral School for Systems and Molecular Biomedicine provides high-quality research training to Ph.D. candidates and offers complementary training to Ph.D. students to complete their knowledge and skills required for their future career development. The interdisciplinary programme of this doctoral school is linked to the research programmes of the University’s Life Sciences Research Unit and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). Bringing together biologists, computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists, the programme aims to offer early stage researchers training, tailored to their specific needs.


The students are free to use the grant at their convenience but the aim should be to increase the quality of their research work. The grant can be used for seminars, conferences, workshops and trainings, to travel or to finance part of their research activities during the Ph.D. study.
