وصف المنحة الدراسية

Deeply concerned by the magnitude of the migratory crisis and the fate of tens of thousands of people in war zones who are seeking refuge in places such as Switzerland, the Graduate Institute has decided to support refugees in Switzerland holding a B or F permit and wishing to pursue their studies by offering them a full annual scholarship amounting to CHF 20,000 to cover living expenses, with the possibility of a tuition fee reduction depending on the candidate’s financial means.

One refugee scholarship is available in each academic year for one new master programme student.


  • Applicants should have been granted a Swiss Refugee status (Permit B) or have a Provisional Admission for Foreigners status (Permit F)

  • Applicants must provide a letter from the Swiss Government confirming refugee status or provisional admission in Switzerland

  • Applicants must be resident in Switzerland

  • Priority will be given to those who meet the above criteria, however, if unable to find a candidate, the search will be expanded to anyone who has been/or who is a refugee in a country other than Switzerland.

  • Applicants must be accepted into one of the study programmes at the Institute

  • Only new students may apply: those already enrolled are not eligible to apply
