The goal of the Zurich Summer School for Women in Political Methodology is to strengthen the methodological skills and professional network of young career researchers who identify as women. To encourage applications from different universities and backgrounds, we offer fellowships for successful applicants. The fellowship covers:

  • Full tuition costs for the summer school courses
  • Travel reimbursements up to 250 CHF
  • Accommodation for the duration of the summer school. External participants will either be accommodated in private housing by staying with Zurich-based participants, or share rooms of two with other external participants at a local guest house/hostel.
  • A conference dinner
  • Lunch, as well as coffee breaks on all days of the summer school


The Zurich Summer School is supported by the University of Zurich’s Department of Political Science, University of Zurich’s Graduate Campus and the Center for Comparative and International Studies.
