Support for members of FEBS Societies
FINANCIAL SUPPORT for early-career RESEARCHERS
Since its earliest days, FEBS has had a strong emphasis on promoting the training of young scientists during their PhD studies and also during the post-doctoral stages of research careers. Financial support has also recently been extended to the early-career group leader stage.
PhD students and early-career postdoctoral scientists who are members of a FEBS Constituent Society of FEBS are eligible to apply for:
- a range of research Fellowships such as Short-Term and Summer Fellowships
- Youth Travel Fund grants to support costs for participation in FEBS Advanced Courses
- YSF grants to support costs for participation in the FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum and the ensuing annual Congress
- bursaries to support participation in the FEBS Congress
In addition, early-career group leaders may be eligible to apply for FEBS Excellence Awards to support research costs.
Most of these schemes are aimed at scientists working within the FEBS area; please see the relevant sections of the FEBS website for full details.
