The establishment of this prestigious fellowship seeks to encourage promising female academics to join SBE and to improve the gender balance at senior levels. The Hermine Weijland Fellowship focuses on promising scientists who specialize in research in the field of Economics and Business Administration. Candidates are expected to distinguish themselves through their well-defined teaching and research profile and their clear potential and ambition to achieve the position of full professor. The fellowship will be used to recruit two Assistant/Associate Professors every year.

The fellowship bears the name of Hermine Weijland (1932-2001), who started at SBE in the 1960s, first as a student, and later as an employee. She was one of the first women to attain her PhD at SBE and went on to build a successful career as an academic. Hermine's life and outlook can still serve as inspiration for female academics today.
