The purpose of the Ambizione grant is to enhance the scientific profile of researchers from Switzerland and abroad and to help them become scientifically independent early in their career with a project of their own. Scientists holding non-professorial academic positions at higher education institutions are also eligible to apply. An Ambizione grant covers the grantee's salary and the funds needed to carry out the project. An Ambizione project grant, however, comprises only project funds. The grants are awarded for a maximum of four years.
