MultiNet Fellows Exchange Program

last modified Feb 15, 2021 01:20 PM

Initial application deadline for 2021-22 academic year:

Priority Deadline is March 29, 2021, but applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

For more general program information and to learn about AccelNet-MultiNet, please visit: This program announcement and the links to the application form can be found at

We have opened a competitive application process for international exchanges between the US and other countries. Participants coming to or originating from one of the founding hubs Indiana University and Northeastern University, Universitat de Barcelona, ISI Foundation, Central European University, and Centre de Physique Théorique will be prioritized, but we anticipate there will be additional funds to support exchanges involving other institutions. At this time, because of NSF restrictions all exchanges must involve a US-based early career researcher traveling internationally or a non-US based early career researcher traveling to the US.

Who is eligible:

Applicants may either be advanced graduate students (post-coursework, see restrictions online) with training in network science or early career scholars (post-doc research scientist, early faculty) with training in the field.

Regardless of career status, due to restrictions on our current grant funding, we can presently only sponsor participants coming from or going to US-based institutions. We cannot sponsor within country travel in the US or between or within other countries at this time (but we are working on expanding this).

Graduate student exchanges may also involve specific home and host institution eligibility requirements (such as being in good standing or reaching a certain advancement stage) beyond our control. We will work with you and your institution to determine what these are after considering your application.

How to apply:

For more information, visit our program announcement and fill out a short application form linked there to indicate interest for the 2021-2022 academic year by March 29. Applications sent after this time may be considered with space available or for future years.
