ETH4D Doctoral Mentorship Grants

ETH4D provides grants for mentoring doctoral candidates from low- and lower-middle-income countries. The mentorship is a one-year appointment and comprises the following components:
  • Mentorship from one ETH professor, senior scientist or postdoc over a period of one year of the mentee’s doctoral studies. We suggest monthly meetings and clearly defined goals of the project, e.g., presentation at a conference, joint publication. ETH mentors are free to serve on the doctoral committee of the ETH4D mentee, but this is not a requirement.
  • Research stay at the mentor’s research group (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) for 1-3 months during the mentorship period.
  • Financial support for attending a conference and/or research material
There are four application deadlines per year: 31 January, 30 April, 30 June, 31 October.

Next application deadline is 31 October 2023.

You will be notified of the decision 5-6 weeks after the deadline.
