Flexibility Grant of the SNSF

Pursue your career while raising a family

Flexibility grants are aimed at postdocs and doctoral students who have to look after children at an important stage in their career and are therefore in need of more flexibility. The Flexibility Grant offers researchers two options to balance their professional and private lives:

On the one hand, it can provide funding to help cover the external child care costs charged to the researcher.

On the other hand, it can be used to help finance the salary of a support person, allowing the grantee to reduce his/her work quota.

The two measures can also be combined.
