ABOUT THE SWISS GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS Through the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS),

ABOUT THE SWISS GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS

Through the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS), the Swiss Government grants foreign students university scholarships (Swiss universities, Federal Institutes of Technology). These scholarships are offered on the basis of reciprocity (fixed number of scholarships for each country) or within the framework of a pool (scholarships without fixed distribution by country). They are intended for students who have graduated from university (postgraduates). These scholarships will enable applicants to further their education and to undertake research work in the fields in which the Swiss universities are

particularly active.

Priority will be given to research fellowships.

The scholarships are in principle offered to foreign governments. The applications have to be submitted for a preliminary selection to the national institution in charge and/or to the Swiss diplomatic representation in the student’s country of origin. The Swiss diplomatic representation will then forward the pre-selected applications to the FCS for final selection.

A Frequently asked questions section (FAQ) is available at the following link: INTERNET LINK Please see that section if you have more specific questions.

1. ELIGIBLE COUNTRIES AND RANGE OF SCHOLARSHIPS (3)

1.4 Scholarship amount

The scholarship amounts to a monthly payment of CHF 1.920 Swiss Francs

1.5 Semester tuition fees and Master fees

The Federal Commission for Scholarships does not pay for tuition and/or semester fees. In most cases the universities and the Federal Institute of Technology of Zurich ETHZ do not require scholarship holders to pay the semester fees (generally around 600 CHF per semester). In some cases the universities do not waive the Master fees. Some programs can cost up to 40’000 Swiss Francs. Should the Universities and/or Universities of Applied Sciences and fine arts schools not waive the fees, it is up to the grantee to pay for the fees.

1.6 Insurance

According to the Swiss law, every resident in Switzerland must be covered by a Health Care Insurance (except for dental care). Usually, the scholarship holders are insured by the FCS. Scholarship holders from EU and EFTA countries have special agreements.

1.7 Travel expenses

Grantees from European and East / Central European countries pay for their own travel expenses to Switzerland as well as back to their country of origin.

Grantees from non-European countries pay for their own travel expenses to Switzerland, but the FCS pays an allowance (lump sum) for the return ticket at the end of the scholarship.

However, the return allowance will not be paid if scholarship holders extend their stay in Switzerland beyond six months after completion of their studies, if they take up employment pending the continuation of their studies or if they move to a third country.
