QuestionAnswer
2
How long do ICFP fellowships last?ICFP fellowships may be 3, 6, 9, or 12 months in duration.
3
Can fellowships be done remotely?Yes. The application page states "While fellows are ideally able to work locally within their host organization, applicants who wish to work remotely will also be considered with the expectation that a strategy for remote communication will be established"
4
I cannot check if my CV was uploaded. Is that normal?Yes. Our new proposal platform does not yet provide confirmation that the file uploaded but in all it has uploaded without issue.
5
Are countries from the Global South considered non-western?For the purposes of fellowship considerations, yes. Any countries that institute significant information controls outside of the US/Canada and Western Europe are potential areas for research.
6
Can fellowship agreements have a part-time commitment?"Fellows are expected to work full time on their project. Some previous fellows have maintained part time positions but full time positions are not allowed."
7
If I am changing status (PhD to postdoc) and host organization (faculty to a laboratory) within the same Western-based university, is this a problem?Your status is not an issue. If you intend to have your host organization be the university you attend, please note that one of the things that is listed to avoid is "Working with a host organization you are already affiliated with"
8
Is it acceptable if I am based at a European university but collaborating with a Central Asian university?Yes, that is acceptable
9
If I already have references, may I include them on my CV?Please feel free to include them
10
There is no word limit stated for the mandatory questions. What is the ideal word count for answering application questions?There is not an ideal word count. While brevity is appreciated, the applicant should include the content deemed relevant to assessing the project idea. Please note that applicants who move past the initial review round will be asked to complete a proposal form where longer descriptions are expected.
