MSCA4Ukraine – a new call for fellowships to displaced Ukrainian researchers


— — — Update: the call closes on 25 November — — —

Due to a large response, more than 400 applications towards the cut-off date of November 11, and the high likelihood that funding will be committed on the basis of applications received by the first cut-off date, the MSCA4Ukraine portal will close on Friday 25 November at midnight CET until further notice.

Please note that any applications received after the first cut-off date and before 25 November will only be evaluated if funding remains after the selection of applications received by the first cut-off date of 11 November. In the unlikely case that there is still funding available after the first two rounds of evaluation, the portal will reopen for new applications in early 2023.



The mobility programme Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions has opened a new call to allow displaced postdoctoral researchers and doctoral candidates in, or from Ukraine, to apply for fellowships to continue their work at academic and non-academic organisations in EU Member States and Associated Countries. The duration of the fellowships is between 6 and 24 months.  The scheme may also facilitate researchers’ reintegration in Ukraine if conditions for safe return are met. The fellowships are open to all disciplines of research and innovation.
