Twice per year (on average), G3S is advertising start-up scholarships (12 months/30'000 CHF). Deadlines for applications are usually set for April and November with the possibility to begin the scholarship at the beginning of the following semester. The scholarships are meant to support graduates in the early stages of their PhD in order to develop research proposals for submission to a funding body such as the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Current call for applications


The "Forschungsfonds" of the Rectorate of Basel University also awards scholarships for the completion of a dissertation.

Nikolaus und Bertha Burckhardt-Bürgin-Stiftung

Freiwillige Akademische Gesellschaft Basel
