Application deadline: March 25, 2024 for the 2024-2025 academic year
swissuniversities uses the Fulbright application form for the Medicus scholarships. When submitting a Medicus application via the Fulbright application portal, there is no option to indicate that you apply for the Medicus and not for the Fulbright program. However, this is not necessary, as the application deadlines for the Fulbright and the Medicus programs are several months apart.
Please review the application instructions carefully before completing the online application.
Application for students (studies/research on Master's or PhD level):
Application for scholars (post-doctoral research and/or teaching):
Important: Scanned copies of transcripts and diplomas (including Diploma Supplement) with English translations from all post-secondary institutions attended must be uploaded to the online application. However, unlike the Fulbright Foreign Student Program, Medicus applicants do NOT need to submit HARD copies of official certified transcripts to swissuniversities.
A complete application consists of the following:
Online application form including
- three letters of reference uploaded by the recommenders into the online application
- copies of academic transcripts and diplomas/degrees written in English or with an original English translation from all post-secondary schools attended
Submission of application: After the application form has been submitted electronically via the Fulbright application portal, the application can be downloaded. Please send a copy of the application in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 25 at midnight.
The Medicus program does not include a service for placement at a U.S. university. Candidates must apply individually for university admission and are asked to provide an official admission/invitation letter of the U.S. host university by the end of May 2024 at the latest. Only after receipt of a copy of an admission/invitation letter, candidates can definitely be considered for a Medicus scholarship.
If you have any questions or doubts about your eligibility or the application procedure, you can contact the Scholarship Service via email email@example.com.
