CERN Fellowship Program awards approx. 200 Fellowships every year. Almost half of the fellowships are for research work (experimental or theoretical physics) under a Senior Fellowship and rest half are for higher development work and related research in a wide range of applied science, computing and engineering either under a Junior/Senior Fellowship depending on the qualifications and experience of the individual.

Fellowships are meant for recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes, or university postgraduates who desire to work in a research group. Fellowships are usually granted for two years initially and can be extended for third year (only in exceptional circumstances).
