About Human Frontier Science Programme 

The aim of the fellowship is to encourage early career scientists to broaden their research skills by moving into new areas of study while working in a new country.

The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) is a program, based in Strasbourg, France, that funds basic research in life sciences.

Study Subject

These fellowships are awarded in the following fields:

1. Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological discipline, who will broaden their expertise by proposing a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from their previous Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.

2. Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (CDF) are for applicants with a Ph.D. from outside the life sciences (e.g. in physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences), who have had limited exposure to biology during their previous training.


Post-award support for fellowship recipients may differ (annual meetings with fellows, access to research infrastructure, opportunities to publish in society journals, advanced training possibilities, etc.).

Scholarship can be taken in for three years. Fellows may choose to stay for up to three years in the host country or use the last year of their fellowship to return to their home country or to move to another HFSPO member country.
