FoKo applications

There are two submission deadlines per year for applications to the Research Committee (FoKo) of the University of Lucerne, one in the spring and one in the fall. Please check if you are eligible to apply, FoKo Regulations, § 4.

Urgent requests for funding of up to CHF 12,000 can be submitted at any time (urgency must be substantiated). The FoKo processes these on an ad hoc basis via a circular procedure that takes about three weeks during the semester and longer during the breaks. Smaller projects can be supported directly by the faculties, more information is available on this website.

The FoKo does not consider backdated applications.
