Students are usually invited to apply by their high school or university. But we also encourage you to apply spontaneously. Our application dossier contains all the relevant information on how to apply and which documents to submit. We look forward to receiving your application if you fulfil the requirements for an admission to the program of the Swiss Study Foundation.
After a first evaluation of the application dossiers, the eligible candidates are invited to a one-day assessment in one of our centers. The assessment consists of several interviews and group discussions. An assessment committee, made up of benevolent assessors with different backgrounds, make the final decision. Our assessment days take place in the three different linguistic regions of Switzerlandand in the three official languages. All candidates who have been at an assessment centre have the possibility to ask for an individual feedback.
Do you have further questions? Our employees stay at disposition to answer your questions by phone (044 233 33 00).
Would you like to become more familiar with the Swiss Study Foundation before sending us your application? Then you can attend an information evening or join as a guest one of our summer schools.
