The purpose of Henning and Johan Throne-Holst’s foundation is to promote research in human nutrition and related sciences in Sweden and Norway. The board wants to achieve this goal by granting three different types of scholarships:
- Scholarships for Nordic doctoral researchers for postdoc studies at leading foreign research centers
- Scholarships for postgraduate students who need to study at an internationally leading center during a certain period of their education
- Grants to doctoral researchers for research projects at universities in Sweden or Norway
The foundation distributes SEK 1 – 2 million annually.
