  • Course Level: award is available to pursue research.
  • Study Subject: award is awarded to study any of the subjects offered.
  • Scholarship Award: The amount of the grant of fellows will consist of the following categories:

  1. The category “living allowance” provides a living allowance for the fellow.
  2. The “mobility allowance” is a contribution to cover the expenses generated by the relocation of the fellow (moving expenses, family expenses related to the relocation, language courses, etc.).
  3. The purpose of the “travel allowance” is to contribute to the fellow’s travel expenses from the place of origin to the host organisation.
  4. The “family allowance” is a support for those fellows who have family duties. Within H2020, family is defined as persons linked to the researcher by 1) marriage or 2) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognized by the legislation of the country where this relationship was formalized or 3) dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher. There is no obligation for the family to travel with the recruited researcher. Kindly note that family status of a researcher will be determined at the deadline of the call and will not be revised thereafter. The family allowance will be paid in monthly instalments as part of their monthly salary. *No proof will be requested at this step. However, successful applicants will have to provide proofs of the family situation that gives right to the family allowance.
