International Research Fellowships

The Swiss Cancer Research foundation promotes talent. It awards international research fellowships to motivated and talented early-career clinicians, enabling the opportunity to gain research experience abroad, receive training and for further education.

As a prospective scientist with an excellent track record, you have the opportunity to apply for a fellowship at one of our two submission rounds. The GAP (Grant Application Portal) offers step-by-step guidance on submitting an application and provides information on the conditions for submission. Only applications submitted online via the portal will be considered.
