End of 'Dual Status' of Bulgaria and Romania
Due to a significant reduction of the 2007 budget, it will not be possible to extend the 'dual status' of Bulgaria and Romania beyond 2006. Scientists from those countries are encouraged to apply for SPS support as NATO country grantees, but will no longer have the option to apply as Partner scientists as had previously been the case. This will be effective for applications submitted for the 1 March 2007 deadline. The dual status provision remains in effect for applications received by the 1 November 2006 deadline.
