The Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS) and the r4d programme aim to use synergies to support young researchers from abroad.

The FCS offers research, PhD, and post-doc scholarships for academics from more than 180 countries in all disciplines, including arts. Researchers within the r4d network might be interested in developing a proposal for a stay in Switzerland. The types and deadlines for scholarships differ between the countries. A requirement for all scholarships is the confirmation of a host professor at a Swiss academic institution who acts as supervisor. More information about the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships for Foreign Scholars and Artists is available at this website External Link Icon.
