Short Term Fellowship

EFIS and Immunology Letters (IL) are proud to award short-term fellowships (max. 3 months worth of funding) for purposes of scientific collaboration, advanced training or of learning techniques or methods not available in the applicant's current place of work. The main purpose of these fellowships is to build a strong network of immunological research within Europe. The monthly fellowship allowance is € 1.750 and is awarded directly to the fellowship holder. In addition, EFIS will reimburse travel costs (economy air or second-class train fare) up to a maximum of € 500.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants must be a member of an EFIS-affiliated society (exceptions to this may apply only for applicants from European countries without a national society);
  • Applicants must be 35 years of age or younger and must hold at least a Master's degree (an extension of this age limit of up to 18 months may be granted for maternity/paternity leave, civil or military service, etc.);
  • The proposed stay must be conducted in a European institution;
  • Fellowships are not awarded in order to attend courses, symposia, meetings or congresses;
  • Fellowships are not renewable and can be held only once;
  • Fellowships cannot be held simultaneously with awards or funding made available by other sources or organizations, nor can they be used to prolong visits begun under other auspices, or as a means to bridge between research visits funded by other organizations.

Deadline: 26 Janaury 2018.
