Title: Gender Equality Grant
Implementation
Field(s) of Action: * Presence and Visibility
Objective:* Individual and flexible support for young women scientists
Target Group(s): PhD students, PhD candidates and research assistants
Postdocs and mid-career scientific personnel
Young women researchers funded by the SNSF
Description: The SNSF aims to foster equal opportunities between men and women in research funding. In this context, the gender equality grant can be used to finance flexible and individualised measures aimed at facilitating the career development of young women researchers working in SNSF funding schemes. The support grant is very much appreciated by the young women researchers. It helps fostering skills needed for a career.
An eligible person receives CHF 1000 per 12 months' approved project running time. The grant may be used to finance career support measures but does not cover family support measures.
The gender equality grant belongs to the category of eligible costs for applications approved since mid-April 2014 (date of the ruling). When submitting the proposal via mySNF, it is not necessary to apply for the gender equality grant as it is covered by a deficit guarantee. Only projects whose eligibility is indicated in the ruling may benefit from a gender equality grant.
If project funds are still available, they may be used to finance the gender equality grant. If the necessary amount is not covered via existing project funds, a compensatory payment may be initiated in the final financial report, provided that reference is made to the corresponding receipts. Special rules apply to fellowship holders.
