FCT informs that the application dates for the PhD Research Scholarship Contest 2020 and the IC&DT Projects Contest in all Scientific Domains have been extended until April 28, 2020 and April 30, 2020, respectively. In addition, the deadline for submitting the declaration of commitment in the scope of the Project Call has also been extended, with the deadline being May 15th, 2020.
This need for postponement stems from recent developments related to the SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 pandemic, which is affecting the work of the scientific community, as well as all other sectors of our society. In this way, FCT seeks to respond to requests sent by candidates, who in their presentations expressed constraints for the implementation of processes, namely in terms of time and access to the necessary documentation to submit applications.
We recall that this year the submission of applications for the Doctoral Research Scholarship Contest is made on the myFCT portal, the new online system to manage the application process, evaluation and approval of the scholarships. For the IC&DT Projects Contest, applications must be submitted through the FCT R&D Project Calls Portal.
