Apply for funding

Developing the careers of highly qualified talented junior academics is key to maintaining Switzerland’s spirit of innovation and competitive edge.

Young students and researchers should be given the opportunity to apply for positions that offer academic autonomy and the chance to take on responsibility early in their careers.

The resources needed to make this happen are provided through grants and scholarships as well as practically relevant education – to help promising up-and-coming researchers develop into the successful scientists of tomorrow. Our grant and scholarship foundation (german) provides donors with the ideal means of supporting students financially.

Are you a student at the University of Zurich who wants to apply for a grant or scholarship? The UZH Student Financial Aid Office is on hand to guide you through the application process.
