For the period (September 2021 – May 2023), the Foundation offers a maximum of ten scholarships of CHF 30’000 each. The Foundation targets international students in the top 10% of their undergraduate programs. Master degree courses in Switzerland are generally given in English, and the tuition fees are minimal.
Candidates must apply for admission to a M.Sc. program at a Swiss University or a Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (see Foundation website for contacts), and, at the same time ask for the support of the institution for an Alfred Werner Scholarship.
The Foundation expects to receive the nominations of the different institutions by mid-April 2021. Since the university admission and selection process may take as long as two months, candidates are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible. Direct applications of candidates to the Foundation will not be considered.
The members of the Alfred Werner Fund Selection Committee are representatives of the supporting companies, the Swiss Universities and the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology.
Results will be announced by the end of April 2021.
