The Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities (KHMW) is delighted that this year once again businesses, foundations, funds and societies are willing to make available the Holland Society Young Talent Awards.

We kindly invite you to nominate using the form below one or two students who graduate in the academic year 2019/2020 for one of the Young Talent Graduation Awards. Nominations should be submitted digitally, including an electronic copy of the degree thesis. The closing date for nominations is 16 September 2020.

In case of a nomination of two, one male and one female candidate should be nominated. Nominations must be accompanied by the written consent of the teacher or graduation advisor of the student. It is not allowed to nominate a student for more than one KHMW graduation award.

The scientific quality and innovative character of the graduation thesis/research report, as well as the overall achievements of the candidates during their studies will be evaluated by a commission of experts, nominated by the board of KHMW.

We look forward to receiving your nomination for the benefit of your field of science, the possible laureate and the promotion of these prestigious awards.
