Each summer, 25 participants from around the world gather for eight weeks of lab experience supervised by faculty and scientific staff. The program provides access to scientific seminars, workshops, and the closing symposium with poster sessions from all participants.
This year the program takes place on 8 July to 29 August 2020.
Each student receives CHF 3,200 for the two-month period which covers housing and living costs. Housing is reserved and paid for out of the stipends beforehand. Students are housed together either in Lausanne or Geneva depending on lab assignment. Students have either single rooms or double rooms and share a kitchen and bathroom facilities with their fellow SRP participants. The majority of travel costs to and from Switzerland is covered. The program reimburses up to CHF 1,000 for overseas flights and CHF 500 for shorter distances
