The Graduate School for Health Sciences may offer financial support to enable doctoral candidates to attend conferences or special courses.
The ability of the GHS to provide financial aid depends on the resources allocated to the GHS from the University at any time.
The GHS works within a 5-year budget, which currently does not reflect the sharp increase of the number of students. This situation requires some adjustments in financial aid management for the years 2023 and 2024.
Due to these financial constraints, the GHS steering board decided to reduce the financial aid provided to max 500 CHF per student per year.
This amount will be provided as long as we have the resources available. The principle by which financial aid will be awarded will be "first come, first served."
To better cover the requests across the whole year, this amount will be divided in two parts and made available to students at the beginning of each semester: from January to June and from July to December, respectively.
Please consider your planning carefully, as you can only apply once per semester (either in the spring or in the autumn) for financial aid for a total of 500 CHF per year. Applications that are not granted in the spring, cannot be re-submitted in the autumn.
Thank you for your understanding.
