UniLU Doc.Mobility Grants

The Graduate Academy grants financial support for doctoral students, who want to spend time abroad to promote their thesis.

The grant will be paid out as an allowance and contributes to living expenses as well as travel and research costs. The allowance will be announced with each term's call for applications. The allowance for FS 2024 is CHF 4900/monthly.

There are two possible submission dates per year. Submit your application through FIS. The earliest possible start of the research stay is 6 weeks after a mobility grant has been awarded.
