    Obligations of the student and the supervising professor

    • - The scholarship recipient has the duty to inform the Program Coordinator at UZH of all facts that could influence the preconditions of the grant. Of particular interest are changes in the studies or the research topic after delivering this application, or additional grants received of other sources. The Coordination Center can decide to withhold part of the grant if the scholarship recipient receives other financial support.

    • - The purpose of the mobility grant is to cover living expenses in Zurich or in Iran, respectively. Grant holders must therefore stay in Zurich or in Iran, respectively, during the scholarship period. If a grant holder plans to be absent for longer than 3 weeks (e.g. for a research trip), he/she needs to notify the Coordination Center. The Coordination Center reserves the right to reduce the allowance during this time, depending on the length, destination, and purpose of the absence.

    • - By submitting the application, the prospective recipient certifies that she/he has read the form and that all information provided is correct.
