MASTER THESIS GRANT

These grants are to support collaborative inter-university top research in the fields of engineering and environmental sciences (which includes bioengineering, but not life science or biology), in all medieval disciplines including medieval studies, as well as research in digital humanities at the intersection of Medieval Disciplines and Computing.

The grant aims to encourage research collaboration between two universities, namely the home university of the Master Thesis candidate and a hosting university or research institute, one of the two being preferably situated in Switzerland. The grant will cover travel and local living costs of the candidate while visiting the hosting university or research institute exclusively, plus limited expenses related to the research to be accomplished while at the hosting university.

THE FOUNDATION WILL NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION, JUSTIFICATION NOR REASON FOR THE DECISIONS CONCERNING THE ACCEPTANCE OR NOT OF AN APPLICATION.

Please consider that no reply will be given to such requests.

Stipend duration

Three to six months.

Grant

No other fees and/or university overhead (tuition fees or visiting fees) will be covered.

The last installment of the grant (CHF 1'900.-) will be paid only upon receipt of a statement sent directly from the thesis advisor at the home university (the same who signed the project), confirming that the attendance was successfully completed.
