Start-up Grants: History, Social Sciences and Literary Studies

University of Basel

The Graduate School of Social Sciences (G3S) offers three, the Basel Graduate School of History (BGSH) offers two and the Doctoral Program in Literary Studies of the University of Basel offers one start-up grants, starting on 1 April 2021.

The aim of the start-up grants is to enable young researchers to develop a competitive application for a research grant or research project position and submit it to a funding institution by the end of the first six months. If successful, researchers will continue to work on their PhD thesis supported by third-party funds by the end of the start-up period.
