The research of the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) is fundamental and driven by curiosity. All of their scientists have a passion to learn more about the world around us, in an open environment of inquiry where breakthrough ideas develop with applications and value for society. The Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) granted the LION Scholarship 2023 with funding provided by the Den Adel Fund for Experimental Physics and the Lorentz Fund for Theoretical Physics.

  • The acceptance motivation letter should explicitly include the fellowship application and emphasize academic excellence.
