About HFSP Awards:

HFSP Fellowships last for three years and on average, provide $200,000 USD in total. Fellows work in the laboratory of a host scientist in a country that is different from where their Ph.D. was conferred.

HFSP Long-Term Fellowships are for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological topic who want to embark on a novel frontier project in the life sciences. Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships are for applicants who hold a Ph.D. in a non-biological discipline (e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, or computer science), but want to work on a novel frontier project in biology.

Among all our awardees we seek scientists who form internationally, preferably intercontinentally, collaborative teams, who have not worked together before, and who are engaging in work with no preliminary data.

The Human Frontier Science Program was founded in 1989 by the G7 nations and the European Commission to advance international research and training at the frontier of the life sciences. Its aims are to promote intercontinental collaboration and training in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research focused on the life sciences. HFSP receives financial support from the governments or research councils of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, the UK, the USA, as well as from the European Commission. Since 1990, more than 8,500 researchers from more than 70 countries have been supported. Of these, 29 HFSP awardees have gone on to win the Nobel Prize.

The International Human Frontier Science Program is headquartered at
12 Quai Saint-Jean, 67000, Strasbourg, France.
