Switzerland depends on promising young talents if it wants to maintain its high standard in science, business and culture.
Since 1991, the Swiss Study Foundation has been supporting excellent students and postgraduates at universities and technical colleges who due to their personality, creativity and intellectual skills are in a position to contribute to science, business, culture and politics. The Foundation’s mission is to promote young people who are willing and capable of assuming leading positions in all sectors of society.
The Foundation offers students and postgraduates learning opportunities complementary to their studies, an individual mentoring and guidance scheme as well as financial support and diverse networking opportunities. At the moment, roughly 650 students and postgraduates benefit from summer schools, study trips and scholarships as well as exchange and mentoring offers from the Swiss Study Foundation.
Please note that our support program is aimed toward Swiss nationals or foreign students, who are studying in Switzerland. As a Swiss institution, we expect that our students speak at least two national languages, as a general rule German and French. This is why the English website is reduced in content; you can find the full information on our German or French sites.
