As from next call, the Fellowship Program of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research will have a single call for a 5-year doctoral fellowship. It unifies and replaces the calls for the 3-year Type I fellowship and for the 2-year Type II fellowship, which were in force. The measure does not include postdoctoral fellowships.

The new method of 5 year unique fellowship begins to be implemented in 2014, replacing the Type I and the Type II fellowships. Eligible applicants must submit, on mandatory basis, an annual report by the director of fellowship.

Also from this modification it is also a 2-year Doctoral Fellowship Call aimed at those seeking to finish their doctorate, which have not been previously benefited by a fellowship from the body. This call is intended for external applicants to the CONICET.

The adjustment to this new 5-year unique type of fellowship will be automatic for those who are currently with Type I Fellowship. On unifying the two modalities fellows currently enrolled in the Type I fellowship will be integrated to the 5 year fellowship, no need to apply for a new call.

Conditions are unchanged for actual Type II Fellowship, granted in the 2013 call, and will end the fellowship in the manner as scheduled.

All directors of doctoral fellowships must submit an annual progress report and an extended report on the third year. The Board will set the time of the year when these reports will be required and shall inform in advance.
