The Outstanding Young Scientist Award Programme (GEBIP)
Launched in 2001, this award programme is one of the first of its kind in the world. The objective of TÜBA-GEBIP is to foster young, outstanding scientists who are at the stage of establishing their own research programmes in Turkey after finishing their post-doctoral research activities. TÜBA supports these scientists for a period of three years and helps them set up their own research groups at a stage when they are in need for incentives. In this way TÜBA tries to contribute to develope a new generation of competent researchers from all disciplines, including social sciences and humanities, basic sciences and health sciences. The Turkish Academy of Sciences considers itself as a school to train young promising academicians.
The GEBIP programme aims to set up a kind of Young Academy of scientists under the age of 40. Aside from a grant provided for a period of three years, a member of the Academy is assigned as the mentor, and an environment of solidarity and interaction is created through joint meetings held with Academy members.
The GEBIP Programme is conducted by the GEBIP Main Committee and the GEBIP Field Committees set up by the Presidency of the Academy. Applications may be in person, by the President of the related university or the highest administrator of the related institution or by a Principal or Honorary member of the Academy.
The selection procedure among GEBIP candidates has very high standards. First, applicants prepare detailed dossiers including their international publications in refereed journals, books edited, ongoing research projects and proposed research programme, plus three letters of reference. Second, juries in four different scientific fields (field committees) evaluate and grade the applicants according to their dossiers and three referee reports. In the final stage, applicants who become GEBIP candidates according to their grade points are invited to an interview.
