Collaborative Developmental Scholarships
Collaborative Developmental Scholarships are for the exclusive benefit of students engaged in research for a doctoral thesis in certain FEBS countries with HINARI status* who need to visit a well-funded laboratory elsewhere in 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: Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Moldova, Morocco, Serbia, Tunisia** and Ukraine. 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 and engaged in a doctoral thesis in one of the FEBS countries stated above, and to be seeking to work in a laboratory in a different FEBS country.
For detailed information, please read the following carefully: General Guidelines for Fellowships; and Guidelines for FEBS Collaborative Developmental Scholarships.
*FEBS countries are countries with a FEBS Constituent Society: www.febs.org/our-members. The HINARI initiative was set up by the World Health Organization and major publishers to enable developing countries to access collections of biomedical and health literature: www.who.int/hinari/eligibility/en/ and www.who.int/hinari/eligibility/transitional_path_offer/en/
