Updates to the “GrantsNet Guide to Financing Your Research Exchange in India.”

Martin Reddington, Director of Scientific Affairs and Communications at
the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP), pointed out a couple of
errors in our discussion of HFSP’s research funds involving India in
our article "GrantsNet Guide to Financing Your Research Exchange in India." This article is part of our feature on research opportunities in India.

Here’s an excerpt from Reddington’s message explaining the organization’s policies …


We were delighted to see HFSP in your item on funding opportunities for
research exchange with India …. However, there is an inaccuracy that
gives a too restrictive view of eligibility and could mislead some of
the Indian scientists we would like to support.

In the fellowship programs, scientists from non-member countries can
only do their postdocs in labs in member countries, but now that India
is a member, young Indian scientists could apply for HFSP funds to do
their postdocs in non-member countries. This is an important point
since we could imagine young Indians going to centres of excellence in
non-member countries such as Singapore or China.

Further, labs in non-member countries may only host fellows from
member countries, so Indian membership now opens the possibility for
Indian labs to recruit post-docs from all over the world….

We updated the article page accordingly.
