Funding for Students

A number of Swiss and foreign institutions and organisations award full or partial scholarships or grants for students. The English Department of the University of Fribourg provides a regularly updated list of sources of funding for undergraduate and graduate students of English. The sources are organised as follows:

  •  Financial support for Swiss students awarded by the federation or by individual cantons, usually in the form of grants or loans.
  •  Financial support for Swiss students awarded by federal or private institutions and organizations, usually in the form of grants or scholarships.
  •  Financial support for students awarded by international institutions and organizations and by universities abroad, usually in the form of grants (also studentships) or scholarships.

If you envisage applying for a grant or a scholarship, bear in mind that it is essential to inquire about requirements regarding discipline, status, age, gender, or nationality, and, most important, application deadlines.
