During 25 years MHV grants have supported female doctoral students and postdocs in Switzerland who had to interrupt or reduce their research activities due to family commitments. The last MHV call was in 2016 and there will be no further calls. As of autumn 2017, a new funding scheme for excellent women researchers at postdoc level called PRIMA (Promoting Women in Academia) will be launched.
Follow-up proposals are usually not intended and are restricted as it is expected that the host institute takes over the funding after the expiry of the grant. If you intend to submit a follow-up proposal, please contact the administrative offices of the SNSF.
