Other funding opportunities

Short-term fellowships

Fondazione AIRC per la ricerca sul cancro (AIRC) will fund Short-term Fellowships, for periods of minimum one month and maximum three months. The fellowships will support the career development of young scientists or physician scientists who wish to learn a new technique or acquire new skills. Fellowships may be used for short term visits to a cancer-focused laboratory or hospital (“Hosting Institution”) located outside of Italy or, when in Italy, in a different region from where the “Institution of origin” (current affiliation) is located.

AIRC Short-term Fellowships are meant to cover the costs due to mobility (such as travel expenses, accommodation and health insurance, when needed, for applicants proposing to spend a period abroad).

The budget allocated to this program will be used to fund approved requests until money is available. There are no application deadlines; applications can be submitted throughout the year, until all available budget has been spent.
