Nestle Nutrition Institute Research Fellowship Grant

Sunday, July 14, 2013
The Nestle Nutrition Institute offers research grants in the fields of young women’s health, mother and child health and nutrition.

We offer these fellowship grants to health professionals from anywhere in the world applying for post-graduate research training. The duration of the training can last up to 6 months. All institutions offering a training programme in the area of Maternal and/or Child Health and Nutrition are eligible to be a host institution.

Fellowship value
The NNI will cover the fellow’s roundtrip travel to the host Institution, lodging expenses and a monthly stipend in addition to any host institution fees and some study related expenses up to 20’000 CHF. The amount of 20’000 CHF applies for the longer length projects. A proportion of this amount will be paid to shorter duration projects.
