Project funding

The project funding scheme enables qualified researchers to independently carry out projects on topics and research objectives of their own choosing.

Researchers can apply for funding to cover research costs and staff salaries as well as expenses related to scientific cooperation, networking and communication; however, they cannot apply for their own salaries. Applicants have until 1 October 2024 to submit their proposal via the SNSF Portal. Please note that you will need to create a new account for the SNSF Portal even if you already have a mySNF account. We recommend that you allow sufficient time to familiarise yourself with the portal and to enter the proposal.
