HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships: what they are and how to get one?

International Grants Awareness Program (iGAP)

An informational webinar on HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships.

IndiaBioscience’s International Grants Awareness Program (iGAP) aims to improve the success rate of Indian applications to international funding opportunities, several of which India directly contributes to. The objective of iGAP is to foster awareness related to international funding programs, impart skills to craft successful applications and inculcate the confidence to apply via stories from previous awardees and mentors. Here we explore the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Postdoctoral Fellowships.
