Start-up Grants for PhD in Literary Studies

The Doctoral Programme in Literary Studies of the University of Basel calls for applications for two one-year start-up grants of CHF 30,000.

The one-year start-up grant is intended to contribute to living expenses during the elaboration phase of a dissertation project in literary studies. The aim of the start-up grant is to prepare and submit a competitive application for follow-up funding or for project employment to the appropriate institutions within six months, in order to then seamlessly continue the dissertation within the framework of third-party funding. 

Application deadline: 26 March 2023

Start date: 1 October 2023
