Faculty of Humanities

Financial support

University management funds

The university management supports the faculty of humanities' young academics with CHF 20'000.- per year at the moment.


Mid-level faculty members can hand in project applications at the committee for research and young academics support.

The projects should support several young academics, e.g. summer schools or workshops. We appreciate if more than one young academic organizes the event. Especially welcome are interdisciplinary projects that connect faculties or universities nationwide or international.

It is possible to only run for partial financing.

The funds can be used to cover travel or hotel costs and food and beverages. The institutes administer the funds.

Application deadlines: April 1st and October 1st

Please hand in the applications forms at: korbinian.seitz@histdek.unibe.ch
