Swiss scholarships for young international researchers

3rd April 2018 Posted by: Student World Online

AMBIZIONE grants for the 2018/2019 academic year are now available. Ambizione grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution.

The scheme is open to reserachers from abraod, as well as from Switzerland. In addition, researchers working as non-professorial teaching staff at higher education institutions are entitled to apply for project funds under Ambizione.

An Ambizione grant comprises the salary of the grantee and project funds. Whereas, an Ambizione project grant contains only project funds. The grants are awarded for a maximum of four years.

Participation requirements:

  • Applicants must hold a Doctorate (PhD) or have completed their medical studies (Staatsexamen or equivalent exam).
  • Applications may be submitted no later than four years after completing the doctorate (PhD). The date of the examination, respectively the defence of the doctoral thesis is the relevant date.
  • Applicants who have completed their medical exam and have done clinical work for at least three years after completing their studies (specialist certification by the FMH is an advantage) may submit an application no later than 9 years after completion of the medical exam.
  • Research activities of at least 12 months after the doctorate (PhD), respectively after the medical exam undertaken at an institution different from the one where the doctorate was obtained, respectively the medical degree was received.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 1 November 2018.
