Dear colleague,

We are delighted that this year once again we have found businesses, foundations, funds and societies willing to make available the Holland Society Young Talent Awards 2019.

We kindly invite you, the exam board concerned or any other competent authority, to nominate with the attached form, a first-year student who has achieved the best grades in the current academic year 2018/2019. After consulting the sponsors, 67 higher education institutions have been designated that can apply for an Incentive Award in the field of science and technology. Your institution is one of them. The nominations are assessed by representatives of the Holland Society. The closing date for nominations is 16 September 2019. You can nominate a student by using the form below.

The laureats will be invited to the award ceremony on Monday 25 November 2019, in the Hodshon House in Haarlem. It goes without saying that in the event your candidate wins a prize, you will also be invited to attend the award ceremony.

For the benefit of your field of science, the prize winner and these Incentive Awards, we look forward to receiving your nomination in the near future.

Prof. dr. A.P. IJzerman, Secretary Natural Sciences
