Testimonials

person

Living abroad during the Neurasmus program helped me to become comfortable with environments that are totally foreign to me. Thus, my experience with Neurasmus led me to apply for a clinical rotation in Slovenia this summer, which is at my own expense. This scholarship will help me cover the cost of this rotation, another example of the Neurasmus program facilitating my intercultural discovery and professional development -- even after graduation!

Neurasmus has been a wonderful and unforgettable experience which sparked my passion and shaped my knowledge of Neuroscience. More importantly, Neurasmus has allowed me to study and work in three different countries and enabled me to meet, interact and collaborate with people from all around the world. I’m sincerely honored to have been selected as recipient of the Neurasmus Consortium Merit-Based Scholarship which will be used towards achieving my career goals and continuing education in the field of Neuroscience.

Schweiger Markus

person

Being part of Neurasmus has provided me with the unique opportunity to study Neuroscience and Neuropathology at the best Universities in Europe. This allowed me to perform innovative research during several internships and to acquire intercultural competences, crucial for scientific collaboration. For me, Neurasmus was a major stepping stone for my scientific career and I am very honoured to receive the Neurasmus consortium merit-based scholarship. I will use the financial support to travel to academic conferences to present my current research and exchange ideas with colleagues from my field. Thank you!

After Neurasmus, I started my PhD as an extension of my master's thesis project in the same lab. My Neurasmus experience played a substantial role in my securing independent funding for my PhD - the program's mobility and diversity was frequently a positive talking point during interviews. Building on contacts I had made during my master's, my PhD project combines clinical, pre-clinical, and methodological research through collaborations with two institutes in Berlin and Leipzig. Being part of the Neurasmus family has also helped motivate me to be more engaged with the broader scientific community - as a science writer and advocate for better scientific practice. In the four years since completing the Neurasmus program, I published five papers (two as first author), which have helped me form a solid foundation for my career as a clinician-scientist.
