Results 2018 AFR Call

The FNR is pleased to communicate that 28 of 100 eligible PhD projects have been selected for funding in the 2018 AFR Call. This represents an FNR commitment of 4.32 MEUR.

AFR is one of the FNR’s longest-running funding schemes and now serves the specific purpose of providing funding for the training of doctoral candidates. Grants are awarded in the form of an employment contract with the host institution, rather than in the form of a scholarship.
