Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships for Foreigners

The Swiss government, through the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS), awards various postgraduate scholarships to foreign scholars and researchers. 

Scholarships provide graduates from all fields with the opportunity to pursue doctoral or postdoctoral research in Switzerland at one of the public funded university or recognised institution:

– University scholarships (Swiss universities, Federal Institutes of Technology, as well as Universities of Applied Sciences)

– Arts scholarships (schools of music and fine arts, only for a limited number of countries).  

The deadline for applications varies from one country to another. The FCS will announce its decisions regarding the scholarships 2016-2017 by mid-May 2016 at the latest.
