The IT’IS Foundation offers fellowships specifically to support female researchers in the field of electromagnetics and information technology.

Fellowships are awarded from the Katja Poković Research Fund that was established in memory of Katja Poković (PhD) who was Director of Laboratory and Customer Services at Schmid & Partner Engineering AG (SPEAG) in Zurich from 1999 – 2021 and a major contributor to the success of all partner units of Zurich 43.
