Category Call for proposal

The FEBS Fellowships programme began in 1979, and became a highly competitive and respected programme for early-stage researchers thanks to rigorous selection methods and the packages offered. Most of its schemes over the years have supported graduate students and early-career researchers in the molecular life sciences in the FEBS area to move to and carry out a period of research in a lab in a different FEBS country, thus broadening their experience and training, giving access to additional research techniques and expertise, and facilitating international collaboration.

FEBS currently offers Short-Term Fellowships, Collaborative Developmental Scholarships and Summer Fellowships. Short-Term Fellowships are for scientists who have obtained their PhD degree within the past six years, and PhD students who have at least one published paper as a main author in an international scientific journal. Collaborative Developmental Scholarships are for PhD students in certain disadvantaged FEBS countries. Summer Fellowships are for PhD students and Master’s students. All are for researchers studying or working in a FEBS country and wishing to move to a different country in the FEBS area for the duration of the Fellowship. In addition, candidates for Short-Term Fellowships and Collaborative Developmental Scholarships need to be a member of one of the FEBS Constituent Societies

FEBS is pleased to announce the launch of a prestigious new scheme from 2021 – the FEBS Excellence Award – to support early-career group leaders in the FEBS area. FEBS Excellence Awards provide funding for research equipment and consumables over a 3-year period.
