How to Apply

 

Applications are subject to preliminary selection by the relevant national authorities and/or the Swiss diplomatic representation. The short-listed applications are then assessed by the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS), which takes the final decision.

Please send a letter describing in sufficient detail the research proposal, the relation to the candidate, and possible future collaboration, and enclose a short CV. This confirmation of support should be written on paper with an official letterhead showing the institution’s official contact details.

The FCS assesses scholarship applications according to three criteria:

  1. Candidate profile
  2. Quality of the research project or artistic work
  3. Synergies and potential for future research cooperation

The FCS is composed of professors from all Swiss public universities. Scholarship awards are decided on the basis of academic and scientific excellence.
