Scientific and academic training

The ISREC Foundation supports PhD students in biology or medicine. This funding is possible thanks to two types of grants:

"Allocated grants" - These grants are awarded to the best PhD students in biology or medicine. They are made possible by donations from physical or moral persons. The Foundation guarantees that the funds are used in full to finance the project to which they have been allocated.

"ISREC grants" - Or financial support from the ISREC Foundation for a thesis - These grants are awarded to the best PhD students in biology or medicine. They are financed thanks to donations, legacies and successions.

Grant applications for students must be submitted by the directorate of the academic institution.
