Fellowships for prospective researchers

Fellowships for prospective researchers offer young scientists, who are at the point of starting their research career, the possibility to stay at a research institution abroad.

These fellowships for a stay oversea are allocated in all disciplines supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). Funding includes personal maintenance, a fixed sum for travel expenses and may include a contribution towards research and conference expenses. The amount of the fellowship is based on family status, family obligations and cost of living in the host country. For more information about the duration, please contact the Servizio Ricerca USI/SUPSI (postdoctoral fellowships: 12 to 36 month; doctoral fellowships: 6 to 24 month).

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) offers a large range of funding opportunities for individual careers. More information.
