SHELL Theoretical Physics stipends

Shell, together with the Dutch Research School of Theoretical Physics (DRSTP), launched a new stipend scheme to support young talented theoretical physicists in the Netherlands. The scheme has been laid out for a period of three years and incorporates approximately ten stipends per year which will be granted to the best Master's students in theoretical physics in the Netherlands.

In the past, Shell hired in the range of five to ten physicists in the Netherlands per year and is concerned about the decline in number of students in basic and applied science in the Netherlands and Europe over the last few years. With these stipends, Shell wishes to emphasize the importance of science education in the Netherlands and in particular the role played by the Dutch Research School of Theoretical Physics.

As in 2008 and in 2009, eleven Master's students have been nominated for a Shell stipend in
