The NLHI endorses talent by providing a grant for talented researchers with the possibility to work at a foreign, internationally recognized institute for up to a year. The idea behind the fellowships is for young people to both develop themselves and to bring skills and knowledge back to Dutch hospitals. The fellowship program is supported by the Foundation Friends of Cardiology (Vrienden van de Cardiologie).
The jury consists of the NLHI board who invites applicants to present their proposal during the Annual Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting. The public of the meeting has the final vote.
