This award had been made possible by a donation from Mrs dr.ir. Marina van Damme (1953). She is a Delft engineering graduate and the first female to gain a PhD at the University of Twente. She has had a distinguished career in science and industry. Marina van Damme wants to enable young female engineering graduates of TU/e to develop and boost their job and career prospects. Marina van Damme has already awarded grants to female engineering graduates 36 times. Her motivation: "I have been given the opportunity to build up some wealth, which now allows me to support young ambitious women." Thanks to Marina van Damme, the grant can be made available annually through the Eindhoven University Fund (UFe).
The University Fund encourages science and education at TU/e and supports cultural and sporting initiatives. If you wish to make a contribution to achieving the goals of the UFe, go to www.tue.nl/ufe. Care about TU/e, care about the UFe!
