General Information about Ambizione Grants
Ambizione grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to execute an independent research project at a Swiss higher education institution. The funding scheme would like to promote qualified researchers from Switzerland as well as excellent researchers from abroad. There are two grant types:
- Ambizione grant with salary
- Ambizione project grant
An Ambizione grant comprises the salary of the grantee and project funds. Whereas, an Ambizione project grant contains only project funds. The grants are awarded for a maximum of four years.
In order to submit a Ambizione Grant a written confirmation by the host institution, in this case the ETH Zurich is needed.
