Since 2001 MARS regularly allocates a budget to support the mobility of early career scientist of MARS Member institutes. Young scientist can visit other MARS member institutes to carry out (part) of a research project at the host institute as a kind of short term sabbatical.

The fellowship can be used to cover the costs of:

  • Travel and subsistence
  • Use (rent) of equipment
  • Use of consumables

Commercial bench fees and personnel costs are not eligible.

 A call for proposals for the fellowships will be announced at the website.

Since 2001, MARS has awarded more than 20 MARS Travel Fellowships. Reports of the Travel Awards can be found in our newsletters. Click here for the overview of the winners of the MARS Travel Awards (Fellowships).
