Collaborative Experimental Scholarships for Central & Eastern Europe
Collaborative Experimental Scholarships for Central & Eastern Europe are for the exclusive benefit of students engaged in research for a doctoral thesis in the currently depressed economies of Central & Eastern Europe who need to visit a well-funded laboratory in Western Europe for the purpose of carrying out experimental procedures that would be impossible in their home country because of a lack of resources.
Applications from PhD students working in the following countries will be considered for the Scholarships: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. In addition, lesser developed regions of Russia may be considered on a case by case basis; however, applications from the regions of Moscow and St. Petersburg will not normally be considered.
These Scholarships are for scientific collaboration, advanced training or employing techniques not available at the candidates’ usual place of work.
Scholarships are awarded for periods of no longer than two or three months.
Applications may be made throughout the year, but should reach the Chairperson of the FEBS Fellowships Committee at least two months before the proposed starting date.
In order to be eligible to apply for a Scholarship, applicants need to be members of a FEBS Constituent Society, to be engaged in a doctoral thesis in a FEBS country in the currently depressed economies of Central & Eastern Europe and to be seeking to work in a laboratory in a different FEBS country.
