Call for Applications — Collegium Helveticum fellowship programme


The Collegium Helveticum fellowship programme is aimed at promising early-career researchers as well as exceptional academics and artists who are already established in their careers. We welcome applicants working in any disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, engineering and technology, medicine or the arts (fine arts, music, design, performing arts, film).

Fellowship types

The Collegium Helveticum has three fellowship types. Junior fellows are postdoc researchers, or art school graduates at an equivalent stage in their career. They spend ten months at the Collegium and receive a grant equivalent to a full salary. Senior fellows are established artists or academics who work at the Collegium during a visiting fellowship at ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich and Zurich University of the Arts. They receive a financial allowance. Associated fellows are the academic partners of the junior and senior fellows at ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich or Zurich University of the Arts.

Fellowship year and start date

The fellowship year runs from 1 September to 30 June. Junior fellows generally begin their fellowship on 1 September. Senior fellows can start at any time.

Application deadlines

The deadline for the next round of applications for junior fellowships is 30 April 2021. There is currently no application deadline for senior fellowships. Applications are assessed on a continual basis.
