GPR BRAIN_2030 call for proposal – PhD extension grant 2022


The GPR BRAIN_2030 offers to students from Bordeaux Neurocampus a fellowship to complete their PhD thesis work, either before or after the defense. The fellowship aims at funding either a fourth year of PhD, or a few months of post-doctoral contract equivalent to a maximum of one year’s thesis salary, covering up a period to finish projects before leaving the lab.

  • The GPR BRAIN_2030 PhD extension grant doesn’t exceed 12 months in total and the equivalent of one year’s thesis salary
  • For PhD students who have obtained a x-month COVID extension, the GPR PhD extension grant will last 12-x months (example: if the COVID extension lasts 4 months, the GPR PhD extension grant cannot exceed 8 months).

Evaluation criteria

  • Curriculum and career plan
  • Quality of the application (clear and concise writing, in line with the template…)
