Marie Curie Fellowships

If you are about to finish your PhD or have just finished, you can consider applying to a Marie Curie Fellowship. The main idea of these fellowships is to support researchers to move to a European country to perform top research. The next deadlines are in August, but if you are really serious about this, you should start now.

Here is some advice about these fellowships:
1. Read carefully the documentation to find out if you eligible and what you will need. 
2. Start preparing the proposal early enough: contact your host institution and supervisor in charge and then start writing!
3. Don't be afraid to market yourself in the proposal and make sure you have something written about every evaluation point. 
4. Ask many people to review it: from the field and outside the field, the National Contact Points can also review it...
5. Get the support letters to your proposal (3 if possible).

6. If possible, get your hands in somebody else proposal from previous years...
