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.

The Holland Society Young Talent Awards are awarded yearly for students in the field of science and technology.

In 2022 there are 17 Graduation Awards, for exceptional achievements (master thesis/research report), for students who graduate in the academic year 2021/2022 at a Dutch institution of academic education. An overview of all prizes can be found in the 'Circulaire Jong Talent Prijzen 2022' below.

The closing date for nominations is 15 September 2022.

We kindly invite you to nominate using the form below one or two students for one of the Young Talent Graduation Awards. Nominations should be submitted digitally, including an electronic copy of the graduation thesis. 

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.
