e. Can I use the SNSF grant to pay my salary?

In project funding this is not possible. The salaries of the applicants are not part of the eligible costs, but the salaries of scientific and technical staff are covered.

In most career funding schemes you can use the SNSF grant to pay your salary or part of it. If you obtain a BRIDGE Discovery grant, you can request that your salary be complemented by Innosuisse.
