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.
