PhD-application guideline: Letter of motivation
State that you (name, university, country) are applying for a PhD scholarship at the Depart-
ment of Micro- and Nanotechnology. Mention which of the available scholarships you are
applying for, and if more than one, present a prioritized list.
Write what has motivated you to apply for the scholarship (why are you interested in the
project?). Relate this to your specific skills (what will you be bringing to the project?) and to
your current and future research interests (what do you expect to get out of the project?).
Feel free to write other comments that you find are relevant for your application.
The length of a letter of motivation is typically one page and no more than two pages.
