Young female researcher at work

An excellent university needs inquisitive students and motivated early career researchers. Above all, it needs exceptional researchers.

Help us enable talented students to complete their studies successfully, young researchers unlock the doors to academic careers, and secure the best researchers for Basel – and hold on to them for the long term. There are countless ways to support others, from contributing to the University of Basel scholarship fund through to financing top international researchers.

Student scholarships

The University of Basel Scholarship Fund provides support to students with financial difficulties to help them through their exams or in the final stage of their studies. Scholarships are awarded by the Scholarship Committee, who scrutinizes the applicants’ financial situation, awarding the scholarships in an uncomplicated manner.

How can I help support students?
Even as little as 100 Swiss francs can make a difference, enabling a student to successfully complete their studies.

We welcome your support. More information can be found here.

Career advancement

The research work and expertise of early career researchers are major contributors to the success of the University of Basel. With the help of private funding, these young researchers are able to conduct new research projects or complete ongoing projects.

How can I support early career researchers?

There are many different ways to support early career researchers. For instance, funding is needed for grants to assist with living costs, as are research contributions and subsidies for research stays abroad or for costs of publishing.

Examples of early career research support

(Center for the Theory and History of Images)

Endowed professorships

Outstanding research calls for excellent minds. Such excellence can be found at the University of Basel, which ranks among the top universities in the world. Endowed professorships are largely financed by private foundations, although private individuals and businesses are also increasingly turning to this form of backing. Endowed professorships can be a way to open up new research areas, to help broaden or even safeguard existing research areas.

How can I support endowed professorships?

With endowed professorships, long-term commitment is an absolute must. A five-year assistant professorship without tenure in the humanities, for example, costs more than one million Swiss francs. A full-time tenured professorship in life sciences involves costs that are a several times higher.

We are happy to advise you individually on how you can help support the university.
