Graduate Student Awards for the Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Graduate Students in Lindau, Germany 

The Diebsturm tower,featured on the Lindau meeting pages, was built around 1370 as the most westerly point of the old town wall in Lindau

Young researchers from around the world meet at Lindau, Germany, for the Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Graduate Students, to exchange ideas, discuss projects and build international networks. To take part in this meeting, young scientists need to pass a multistep international nomination and selection process based on the selection criteria published by the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.

You can learn more about the Lindau Nobel Meetings at the following Web sites:

The selection process is extraordinarily competitive. Each university may nominate only two students per sponsoring agency (NIH, DOE, ORAU, and Mars, Incorporated).

Nominated students who attend this meeting:
  • are U.S. citizens currently enrolled at a university as full-time graduate students;
  • have completed by June 2017 at least two years of graduate studies and not more than four years in physiology, medicine, or in a related field, including the basic biomedical (or life) sciences;
  • are supported by and/or working on a project, grant, or fellowship sponsored by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) or the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

We are especially interested in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including women, minorities and people with disabilities.
