The Swiss Government, through the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS), awards various scholarships to foreign researchers and artists:
- Scholarships for research stays, doctorates and post-doctorates at Swiss universities, Federal Institutes of Technology as well as Universities of Applied Sciences
- Arts scholarships for master studies and research stays at schools of music and fine arts (only for a limited number of countries)
Scholarships for master studies are only awarded to a very restricted number of countries.
No scholarships for bachelor studies are granted.
The application process for a Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship for the academic year 2013–2014 is closed. It is thus not possible to apply for 2013–2014 anymore.
The new offer for the academic year 2014–2015 will be published in August 2013 on this page, as well as on the website of the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS).
The Embassy issues this warning against fake Swiss Federal Government Scholarships advertised by e-mail. The Swiss Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (CFBE) never advertises its scholarships by e-mail. The scholarships are directly managed by the Swiss Embassies in the various countries. The Embassy recommends to never answer to these e-mails and above all not to send any money.
