  1. Dear members of the Selection Committee of the University of Twente.

    I would like to apply for the Professor de Winter Scholarship, but unfortunately there is no clear information on the application form. The Moldovan Ministry of education has published your announcement in E – NEWSLETTER NR. 13 (299), APRIL 06 TH 2010 – NATIONAL YOUTH RESOURCE CENTRE (NYRC) at This means, that there are only two days to be acquainted with your information to participate properly in the selection procedure. Is it still possible to get information on the application form or the person, responsible for this selection in Moldova?

    That would be nice to be announced in time to make the competition in Moldova more transparent and well organized.

    Sincerely yours,

    Aurelia Lozan
