Grants for PhD. studies. 2018-2019
The panel of judges appointed by the Fundación Juanelo Turriano Trust to determine the winners of the foundation’s PhD. grants met on 30 October 2018.

After reviewing the 11 applications received, the panel deemed that none conformed to point 2 of the rules: ‘the grants are awarded to write a PhD. thesis dealing with the history of science or technology’. They consequently decided to award no grants in the 2018 funding round.
