SNSF - Extension of mobility fellowships

Research and Transfer Service

30 March 2020

If you will conclude your mobility fellowship between 30 April and 31 December 2020 (Doc.Mobility, Early Postdoc.Mobility, Postdoc.Mobility and Advanced Postdoc.Mobility) and, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, you cannot do your work or what you can achieve is limited, the SNSF is introducing a special measure that allow you to extend your fellowship by 2 months.

To cover the costs, it will make available 4 million francs. You can apply for this extension on mySNF as a supplementary grant with the reference "Covid-19". (The mySNF platform will be upgraded in the next few days.)

You can also request an extension if your fellowship does not end by 31 December 2020 or if you need more than a two-month extension (due the Covid-19 pandemic). Such applications need to be submitted two to four months before the end of the fellowship.
