0c) What happens if I can't work as many hours as usual because of care duties?

The SNSF appreciates that some researchers may not be able to work the number of hours they usually do because of the pandemic. In particular, it takes into account the impact on researchers with care duties. Their applications for supplementary grants will generally be approved by the SNSF. That said, the duty of employers to continue salary payments shall take precedence. Separate provisions apply to recipients of a mobility fellowship, which finances a stay abroad (see separate FAQ).
