Fellowship Details

  • The purpose of Ukrainian Short-Term Fellowships is to specifically help Ukrainian molecular life scientists, given their current situation, to develop scientific collaborations with host researchers and organizations in FEBS countries (countries with a FEBS Constituent Society), with the hope of attracting further funding to extend their joint research stay, if required. The collaborations should be of mutual research interest to both Fellow and host and could involve developing joint research projects, undertaking advanced training or employing techniques not available at the usual place of work.
  • Ukrainian Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for up to 4 months.
  • Ukrainian Short-Term Fellowships are intended to cover subsistence and travel costs to the host lab for the Fellow only. The daily subsistence allowance is calculated at €100 per day and a non-negotiable fixed amount of €12,000 for a stay of up to 4 months, will be provided.
  • Applications must be completed in English.
  • The Fellowship should be taken up within six months of its award. Any delay will require the authorization of the Chairperson of the FEBS Fellowships Committee.
