Rosi Braidotti en Anneke Smelik

The ROSANNA Fund has been founded by Rosi Braidotti and Anneke Smelik with the goal of stimulating the academic education of talented women at Utrecht University. It is aimed at women researchers at crucial points in their careers. ROSANNA provides them with financial assistance to reach the next professional step: a scholarship for a PhD or a post-doc, help with publications or study visits abroad, support to get a tenured position or a professorship.
