Grants and Scholarships

Swiss citizens enrolled at universities and other education institutions in Switzerland who are seeking to apply for individual funding are advised to contact the grants office of their canton of residence or origin.

The Swiss grants system is subject to cantonal jurisdiction. In accordance with the Bologna Guidelines Art. 1 al. 2 (german), Bachelor and Master students are deemed eligible for individual funding.

In some cases, cantonal grants may be used to fund a period of study abroad. Students seeking to apply for such funding must demonstrate that the academic subject in question or that parts of such a subject are not offered at any Swiss university.

Please consult for details about the Swiss grants system. This site also lists the contact addresses of the cantonal grants offices.
