Launch of Constance van Eeden PhD Fellowship
To stimulate the recruitment of female PhD candidates, CWI launches the Constance van Eeden PhD Fellowship in 2022. From this year on the fellowship offers one PhD position to a talented young female student in mathematics or computer science or a related field of science.
It is put in place in honour of and named after Constance van Eeden (1927-2021), who worked at CWI from 1954 to 1960 and was one of the first female PhD students in statistics in the Netherlands.
CWI believes that in order to increase the number of women in science, there should be more female role models. Constance van Eeden was such a role model. While raising her daughter Kari, she became the first Dutch woman to complete a PhD in statistics. In this respect, she was a real trailblazer. It would be almost 30 years before other women would follow in her footsteps.
