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 supports young researchers both from Switzerland and abroad. Scientists holding non-professorial academic positions at higher education institutions are also eligible to submit an application.
An Ambizione grant covers the grantee's salary and the funds needed to carry out the project. An Ambizione project grant, however, comprises only project funds. The grants are awarded for a maximum of four years.
The main participation requirements are listed below. Please consult the Ambizione Regulations to determine your formal eligibility.
The precise periods are calculated on the basis of the relevant submission deadline (1 November 2022)
