General Information about Prima Grants
PRIMA grants are aimed at excellent female researchers from Switzerland and abroad w ho aspire to a professorship in Switzerland. PRIMA grantees lead their own research project at a Swiss higher education institution. They work independently and have a team of their own.
A PRIMA grant comprises the grantee's salary and project funds for a duration of up to 5 years, the possibility to plan a stay at another host institution and the offer of a mentoring network. With this generously endowed grant, the promoted researchers should be able to enhance their academic profile. The SNSF intends to award up to 12 grants each year to excellent women researchers.
Applicants who meet the personal requirements for an Ambizione grant may request that their PRIMA application stands also as an Ambizione application.
