FoKo applications

There are two submission deadlines per year for applications to the University of Lucerne research committee (FoKo), one in springtime, one in autumn. Please check whether you are eligible to apply, FoKo-Regulations, § 4.

Urgent applications for support amounts of up to CHF 12,000 can be submitted at any time in case of valid urgency. The FoKo will deal with these on an ad hoc basis via a circulation procedure. Such a procedure takes around three weeks during semester times and some more time during holidays periodes. Smaller projects can be supported directly by the faculties, pls. see more information.

The FoKo does not treat any backdated application.
