Over the past months, we’ve seen a few posts on the Node from people who spent a few months working in labs abroad. All of them were funded by a Development travelling fellowship. The next deadline for these fellowships is coming up on December 31st, and Development would like to encourage you to apply.
To qualify, you must be a graduate student or postdoc planning to work for a few months in a distant lab in 2011. Have a look at the fellowship site for the full requirements, and read these stories from previous recipients on the Node.
