VU University Research Fellowship (URF) is a programme developed for a select number of internationally renowned scientists at VU University Amsterdam. It is a token of appreciation and a public tribute to the university’s most excellent scientists for their extraordinary research performances. These scientists will be entitled to reward the best student of their choice with a University Research Fellow which will carry their own name.
The attribution of the personal URF is reserved for leading scientists who are recognized by their peers for their extraordinary contributions to their disciplines through the receipt of the following grants or distinctions: NWO Spinozapremie (in Dutch), KNAW Academy Professor Prize, ERC Advanced Grant, VU University Professors.
