Associates and PhD Fellows

oikos Fellowships offer outstanding students a scholarship to pursue studies and research on sustainability in economics or management and to lead oikos projects. They support young leaders with a strong drive to develop profound knowledge with social competence and the ability to turn ideas into action.

oikos Associate positions are research positions within oikos, focussing on a specific topical area and running for at least 6 months and up to a year. oikos Associates compile in-depth reports on their topic, first and foremost relating it to sustainability. The Associate position is a grant to highly motivated individuals from within and outside the oikos community to bring added value to the international team and the external financing institution.

The Fellowship program was started with the oikos PhD Fellowships at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, in 2006, and expanded to include oikos PhD Fellowships at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, in 2014.

The Associate program was started in 2016.
