Engineering for Development Doctoral Mentorship Scholarship Programme 2023 for Developing Countries


Summary


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 or 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


Benefit:


The grant covers expenses up to a maximum of 15k CHF and includes the following:

  • Economy roundtrip ticket (max. 2 kCHF) to and from Switzerland for the research stay

  • Visa fees

  • Travel allowance to attend an academic conference

  • Research material (e.g. lab equipment) (max 6 kCHF in total).

  • Fees for health insurance

  • Local transportation

  • Accommodation

  • Living allowance for the duration of the research stay at ETH Zurich


Eligibility:


Eligible are doctoral candidates who are registered at a university or research institute in a least-developed, low-​ and lower-middle-income country.

The application needs to be submitted by the ETH professorship hosting the doctoral candidate. Applications directly submitted by the doctoral candidate will NOT be considered.


Deadline:


30th April 2023
