The SNIS offers project grants for pluri-disciplinary research teams. The project grants run for two years and range from 100ʼ000 to 300ʼ000 Swiss Francs. To be eligible for funding, project proposals must qualify as:
a) International studies: Projects carry out research on global issues that are either relevant in the international arena or at least concern multiple countries simultaneously. The SNIS considers that International Studies deal not only with the analysis of international relations, but also with political, economic, social, environmental, legal, health, scientific and development issues.
b) Pluri-disciplinary: Projects are pluri-disciplinary and they can include disciplines from both social and natural sciences.
