ThinkSwiss Summer Schools

If you are a Swiss university organizing a summer school:

Next to offering research scholarships to students, ThinkSwiss also provides financial support to summer programs organized by Swiss institutions. The money will be awarded directly to the individual institutions, which are then asked to pass the travel grants on to students from U.S. and Canadian universities participating in the summer school. This helps the institutions to recruit U.S. and Canadian participants and presents an incentive for those students to spend their summer in Switzerland.
