Call for Applications: 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships

25. 6. 2020

Internal LSE/EFPU Deadline: Friday 24 July 2020

EU Deadline: 9 September 2020


The European Foreign Policy Unit (EFPU) of the London School of Economics (LSE) is inviting applications for the 2020 round of MSCA Individual Fellowships. If you are interested, please contact Dr Federica Bicchi ( as early as possible (and no later than 24 July 2020) with 1-page summary of the research project and CV. By 1 August 2020, the EFPU will assess if it can support your application and, in case, put you in touch with your proposed supervisor.

For full details of the scheme and how to make an application, visit the EC’s Funding Tenders website here. Documents which may be particularly helpful to applicants are the EC’s Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, available here, and the Guide for Applicants, available here.

MSCA Individual Fellowships fund researchers (who already have a doctorate or equivalent research experience) to undertake a research project of their choice. International mobility is essential and fellowships include personal and career development objectives. Applications must therefore be written jointly between the applicant, the prospective supervisor and the EFPU of LSE.


UK institutions are still eligible to apply to host MSCA Individual Fellowships under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement until 31 December 2020. Evaluation will not be affected by Brexit. The terms of the withdrawal agreement also guarantee that selected projects will be funded by the EU for their full duration regardless of start and end dates. More information available here.
