How to Apply

How to apply for a STEP fellowship

Applications are welcome from students in developing countries who are enrolled in a PhD course at their home university. PhD students who are supervised by an ICTP Associate are encouraged to apply.

The programme aims at an equitable participation of fellows, and therefore especially welcomes applications from woman scientists.

Priority will be given to young researchers.

 Deadlines to submit applications are: 

  •   1 March
  •   1 September

of each year, for applications to be considered at the March and September meeting, repectively, of the selection committee.

NEW: A call for application is now open with deadline 1 March 2017. Applicants should complete the online form here (Part I). Once this form is submitted with also the contact details (email) of the applicant's PhD supervisor at the home institute, the home supervisor will receive a link to fill the second part of the application (Part II). Only complete applications with both online forms (i.e., Part I & Part II) submitted by the deadline will be considered.

For information only, the previous word version of the application form with details on the information requested online from the applicant (Part I) and home supervisor (Part II) can be viewed/dowloaded here.
