The Alamaya Foundation has set up a sponsorship program for PhD students of the Unit for Research in Schizophrenia (URS). A PhD student’s contract last for a period of 4 to 5 years until the completion of his/her thesis. The average annual cost of his/her salary, including social security contributions and part of the laboratory material needed for his/her work, amounts to CHF 60’000. Sponsors can choose to ensure all or part of his/her annual salary, and will receive regular updates on progress achieved. Sponsorships thus have a twofold objective: they not only help to advance a pioneering research program, which meets crucial, urgent and too often unrecognized needs, but also serve to further a high level academic community.
