Is it possible to apply for an extension of a ProDoc research module, even if the programme has been stopped?

​Yes, as a beneficiary of an ongoing research module, you may request an extension of the doctoral post(s) concerned, even though there have not been any further calls for the ProDoc programme since 2012 and as long as you have not been informed of any specific conditions. The requst for additional funding must enable the doctoral student(s) to complete their research. The grant would be awarded in accordance with Article 6.4.5 paragraph 2 of the General implementation regulations for the Funding Regulations.

The grantee responsible for the research module must make this request for additional funding directly via his/her ongoing application in mySNF by providing the necessary information, in principle approx. 6 months prior to the end of the research module.
