Can I submit an application for a Doc.CH grant requesting funds for an interdisciplinary dissertation?

​Yes, under certain circumstances. All applicants for a Doc.CH grant must hold a degree that entitles them to do a doctorate in the humanities and social sciences (HSS) at a university in Switzerland. The main topic and the main discipline of the project must be part of the HSS; they must adequately reflect the reality of the project in terms of e.g. research question and methods (see "List of disciplines" on www.snsf.ch > Funding > Documents & downloads > Further documents). Disciplines outside the HSS are acceptable as secondary disciplines. It is possible to be matriculated at a faculty outside the HSS as long as the university agrees to it. But supervision must centre on HSS, in particular the research field of the main supervisor must be within HSS.
