The aim of the Programme is to support the international mobility of PhD students, scientists and academic teachers in pursuit of scientific excellence by enabling them to conduct their research in renowned foreign institutions around the world.
The Programme is open to PhD students and scientists representing all fields and disciplines of science as well as artistic disciplines. There are also no restrictions regarding countries where the Host Institutions are located.
Research fellowships (3 to 24 months) shall allow scientists to stay in recognized research centres and to implement the Projects together with eminent foreign scientists and scientific teams as well as establish long-term relationship with foreign scientific teams. For young scientists, the Bekker Programme will be also an opportunity for postdoctoral fellowships while for PhD students it can be the part of their education.
The Programme provides funding to cover scholarship holder's living expenses related to the stay in the foreign Host Center and the mobility allowance as well. The amount of the funding may be increased if the grantee's spouse and his underage children participate in the trip. It also applies to assistant of a scholarship holder with a severe or moderate disability.
