Cantonal Grants

In Switzerland the cantons are responsible for awarding financial support (grants and loans) to students wishing to study in Switzerland or abroad. On the basis of the relevant cantonal legislation they decide who receives such financial support. In principle, persons with a residence permit or refugee status may also apply for financial support.

Under the Bologna Guidelines Art. 1 para. 2, grants can be awarded for both bachelor and master degrees.
