FEPS Travelling Fellowship: Call for Applications is open

- In 2022 FEPS has introduced the FEPS Travelling Fellowship (FTF) with up to 2 awards each year (up to € 1,500.- each).

- The awards can be used flexibly for travelling to and staying in another European country, to promote an applicant’s career in physiology. The country should be an in good-standing member of FEPS.

- This fellowship could be to support and develop research or exceptionally teaching. These awards are targeted at those who are postdoctoral workers, or in their first tenured position.

- Given the need to focus our limited funds and being aware of regional differences in the capacity of FEPS national society members, we will prioritize applications from those in regions where local funds are particularly restricted.

- These awards are not open to undergraduate or postgraduate students or senior scientists.

- These awards are not intended to cover meeting attendance – FEPS has a separate funding scheme for attendance at its meetings, including Europhysiology.

- Applicants will need to demonstrate how they will benefit from the FTF. They must have a host, clearly developed plans, aims and a timetable for their visit. The availability of any other supporting funds or benefits in kind (e.g. free accommodation), should be mentioned in the application.

- Applications will be judged primarily on the potential of the candidate and, the strength of their case.

- Successful candidates should also provide a short report on their FTF, suitable for the FEPS webpage and newsletter after their visit.

- Successful applicants must make their own arrangements for the visits and submit receipts after their visit. If necessary, e.g. to purchase travel tickets and other reservations, the financial support can be provided in advance, with the necessary supporting documentation.
