Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships
Research Fellowship

Each year the Swiss Confederation awards Government Excellence Scholarships to promote international exchange and research cooperation between Switzerland and over 180 other countries. Recipients are selected by the awarding body, the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS).

Objective: To enable selected applicants to undertake research in the realm of their PhD or medical specialisation at one of the 10 Swiss cantonal universities, the two Swiss federal institutes of technology, the public teaching and research institutes or the universities of applied sciences.

Validty: The Scholarship is only valid for full-time research in Switzerland. It is not valid for mixed research (part time in Switzerland and part time in another country; no possibility and no funding for fieldwork). PhD students with an ongoing or planned doctoral project that is carried out within the framework of a formalised agreement between two universities (“co-tutelle de thèse” cooperation between a Swiss and a foreign university) and under the joint direction of two supervisors are eligible for a 12 month research fellowship only.

Duration: 12 months maximum (starting in September); no prolongation possible.
