Marie Curie Individual Fellowship?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does anyone know if Americans are eligible to apply for EU Marie Curie Individual Fellowships? It looks like they'd be eligible for the 'European Fellowship' type of IF, but no one seems to be able to give me a straight answer. Maybe someone on here knows/has done one?

Thanks!

It seems like it is open to applicants that are open to moving within Europe and have a doctoral degree. The United States, however, is not on the list of countries eligible for funding. The full list can be found here:  http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/other/wp/2016-2017/annexes/h2020-wp1617-annex-a-countries-rules_en.pdf

I thought for the EU fellowship, anyone is eligible regardless of citizenship as long you are hosted by an EU organization (e.g. https://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/actions/individual-fellowships_en). 

For a direct answer, I found this FAQ page: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/support/faqs/faq-890.html

I know of at least one American who was an EU Marie Curie fellow. I also know of others non-EU and non-US people that are Marie Curie fellows working in the EU. 

I think the fellowship where you are working outside of the EU may have more restrictions such as the list of countries Warelin mentioned.
