NSF-NATO Postdoctoral Fellowships: Outreach to East Europe


AGENCY: National Science Foundation

PROGRAM: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) invite brief proposals for support of short-term, travel-related activities to promote interactions between scientists and engineers in the United States and Eastern Europe Cooperation Partner Countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, The Czech Republic, and the 15 republics of the former Soviet Union).

QUALIFICATIONS: Proposers may work in any branch of science or engineering normally supported by the Foundation. A NATO Senior Scientist/Engineer/Educator Fellow refers to a US citizen, national, or permanent resident, at the PhD or equivalent level who seeks to lecture, research or pursue other professional interactions with scientists, engineers or educators (including government agencies) in an institution in a Cooperation Partner Country.

RESTRICTIONS: Visits are generally not to exceed 30 days. Proposals may request support for no more than two fellows. The Foundation normally will not support biomedical research with disease-related goals, including work on the etiology of diseases, diagnosis, abnormality, or malfunction in human beings or animals. Animal models of such conditions, or development of testing of drugs or other procedures for their treatment, are also generally not eligible for support.

MONETARY SUPPORT: Fellowship amounts will vary by request with the maximum amount being $5,000.
