The Marie Skłodowska-Curie 2016 Fellowships are part of the Horizon 2020 programme.

Proposals are joint submissions between the Fellow and his/her host Department/supervisor. A key objective of the fellowships is career development and skills aquisition so planned training must be addressed in the application alongside research objectives. 

Research fields are chosen freely by the applicants and all research disciplines offered at Oxford are eligible for funding.

The grant provides an allowance to cover your living, travel and family costs. Research costs and overheads of the host organisation are also supported. 

There are two fellowships available: European Fellowships (EFs) and Global Fellowships (GFs).
