2) A whole community
fund┋it has even more to offer!
1- A programme may already have been scrutinized by experts identifying its assets or pointing out target disciplines or topics. If you want to know why you should go for this programme, or understand the indicated SSH rate for European projects, just click on the information icon above the call title. Nota: not every call features such an analysis.
2- You have spotted an interesting programme and would like to know more about it? The fund┋it community is waiting in the wings to answer your questions: there may already be a discussion going on on that programme of yours in our Linkedin group. If you want to join in, just click on "Join the discussion" on the right of each call. (Make sure you have a Linkedin account for that.) You might also find feedback by other scholars on that specific programme. Approach them, ask them, the community is there for you!
And because any piece of information can be a key to success, we are also keeping a blog where we regularly post former fellows' feedback, or interviews, or accounts from funding bodies, letting you in on some tips and tricks on how to stand out with your application. See for yourself by following the link to the blog on the bottom left.
It goes without saying that you can also find us on Facebook and Twitter where all new calls are posted, too. We are always trying to make it as easy as we can for you.
Share your experience
-> You are familiar with a program, you have maybe even been one of its past (and most eminent) fellows: share your impressions and advice with us, you will be sure to help more than one potential candidate.
