Grants & Awards

We are leading the way in promoting excellence and diversity in science, and in channelling high quality knowledge to solve today’s societal problems around microbiology. Our grants and awards program is essential to achieving this aim.

Grants – We give grants to hundreds of scientists each year. These grants provide the funding for our grantees to access the research opportunities, training, and academic events that advance knowledge sharing and scientific networking. We also award grants to those organizing events that address the needs of the microbiology community.

Awards – Our awards recognize that scientific excellence can be found across our diverse community and at all stages of a scientific career.

FEMS Journals and Open Access

Embracing an Open Future

All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
