The University of Applied Science Emden/Leer has awarded for the second time promising students and Ph.D. fellows with the fem:talent Scholarship. The students have to already succeed in their field of expertise or are expected to succeed in the future. The fem:talent Scholarship provides a financial support for a year and a pool to exchange ideas and support.

She will be continuing her work in the next year. “I am very happy to be supported from Emden for the next phase of my Ph.D. topic. This will be hopefully very helpful for children with dyslexia in the future.”
