DSI Excellence Program for PhDs – Scholarships available!

Doctoral students are the next generation of scientists. It is therefore crucial for their future prospects that their skills are always up to date with the latest developments.  

The Digital Society Initiative (DSI) offers an Excellence Program for new and prospective doctoral students at the University of Zurich (UZH) who are interested in digital transformation. As a complementary curriculum to a doctoral program, general doctorate or doctoral subject, it prepares students from all disciplines for an environment in which interdisciplinary collaboration on digitalization topics is a top priority. The program promotes interdisciplinary collaboration across all UZH Faculties.
