b) Am I permitted to submit a Spark application if I am already getting support through other SNSF funding schemes?

Spark applications and grants are allowed independently from applications or grants under other SNSF funding schemes. Furthermore, Spark does not breach any restrictions in career funding (Ambizione, Eccellenza or PRIMA). There needs to be a substantive thematic difference between the projects, however. SNSF-funded project staff may submit Spark applications if they terminate their employee status before starting their project in the event of their application being approved.
