Honour roll

2020 PhD scholarship winners

Five PhD scholarships were awarded following the two calls launched last spring.

Following the two calls for applications launched at the beginning of 2020, NeuroSchool’s PhD program has awarded:

  • Three 3-year PhD scholarships to high-level students who have obtained a master’s degree in a foreign university.
  • Two PhD scholarships for international co-supervised PhD fellowships between AMU and a foreign university.

In response to these calls, the PhD program received 48 eligible applications from students who applied for one of the 16 projects (9 international and 7 co-tutoring) submitted by all Marseille laboratories. Eleven candidates were pre-selected on the basis of their applications and according to the ranking made by the project leaders.

Auditions were held on Friday, June 5 before a jury including a representative from each NeuroMarseille laboratory. The following results were obtained unanimously.
