International ETH Zurich Excellence Masters Scholarships, Switzerland

International ETH Zurich Excellence Masters Scholarships, Switzerland

Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme / Master Scholarship Programme

ETH Zurich supports excellent students wishing to pursue a Master’s degree at ETH with two scholarship programmes:

Under the Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme (ESOP) students receive a special scholarship for the duration of their programme as well as specific supervision. The scholarship covers the full study and living costs during their Master’s degree course.

Under the Master Scholarship Programme (MSP) students receive a partial stipend during their Master’s degree course and the offer of an assistantship.

Who can apply?

The scholarship programmes are open to excellent students both from the ETH and from other universities (national and international) wishing to pursue their Master’s degree at ETH Zurich. The prerequisite is a very good result in their Bachelor’s. Students must belong to the best 10 percent of their Bachelor’s programme.

The application consists of

All information provided in the application must be complete and correct. The pre-proposal for the Master’s thesis must be developed by the applicant him/herself and use established scientific citation practice.

Plagiarism, negligent or intentional misinformation will lead to exclusion from the admission process or – if discovered later – to the revocation of the admission and of any scholarship.

If you are applying for more than one Master’s programme, please submit a separate application form for each degree programme.

You can only apply for an Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme or a Master Scholarship Programme if you, at the same time, apply for a Master’s degree programme at ETH Zurich (or if you, as an ETH Bachelor student, continue with a consecutive Master’s degree programme). If you are already enrolled in a Master’s degree programme at ETH Zurich, you are not eligible to apply for this scholarship anymore.

Scholarship amount and duration

The Excellence Scholarship consists of a grant covering living and study expenses (CHF 11,000 per semester) as well as a tuition fee waiver. The scholarship begins when the student commences his or her Master’s degree and is awarded for the regular duration of the Master’s programme (three or four semesters). It is awarded independently of the scholarship holder’s financial situation.

The Master Scholarship consists of a partial stipend for living and study expenses (CHF 6,000 per semester) as well as a tuition fee waiver. The department can additionally provide a scholarship of CHF 1,500 – 3,000 per semester or offer an assistantship from the second semester onwards (with a payment of CHF 600 per month).

The scholarship begins when the student commences his or her Master’s degree and is awarded for the regular duration of the Master’s programme (three or four semesters). It is awarded independently of the scholarship holder’s financial situation. The Master Scholarship Programme requires a financial contribution from the scholarship holder.

Selection

The applications are evaluated by the Admissions Committees of the respective Master’s programmes. The final decision for awarding scholarships in the Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme and in the Master Scholarship Programme rests with the Rector of the ETH. The number of annual scholarships depends on the availability of funds

A great way to start your career!

In 2009, CERN introduced a new ‘Graduate Engineering Training (GET)’ scheme. CERN is already well-established as a central and vital force in the physics community, but CERN also offers outstanding possibilities for training and work experience in engineering fields. The aim of this scheme is to encourage Fellowship applications from talented engineers and should prove to be a positive step forward in showing CERN is not only an exciting place to work for physicists, but is also a leading employer in engineering fields.

CERN is proud to be involved in COFUND a European Commission Marie Curie Action to stimulate mobility and career development through fellowship programmes. We will be offering a limited number of 3-year Fellowships to top-ranked Senior Fellows through the COFUND programme from the November 2012 until the May 2015 committees. A feature of the COFUND programme is the possibility to spend up to 12 months of the Fellow contract at another institute, provided that the work still corresponds to your original project at CERN.

Engineers selected under the GET scheme benefit from the same conditions as all other Fellows.

 

  • You are a national of a CERN Member State. However, a limited number of positions are also available to young scientists from Non-Member States with a Senior profile.
  • You have graduated or are about to graduate with a university degree (BSc level or above) or a technical engineer qualification. NB: Applicants who are currently preparing a diploma are eligible to apply. However, they are expected to have obtained their qualification by the time they take up their appointment at CERN.
  • Either, you have a MSc level diploma or above with no more than 10 years relevant experience;
  • Or you have only a BSc or a technical engineer diploma with no more than 4 years relevant experience.
  • If applying in experimental or theoretical physics fields, you have aPhD or are about to finish your thesis.
  • Non-Member State candidates seeking a postdoc in Theoretical Physics should apply for the Non-Member State Postdoc Fellowship Programme (Theoretical Physics).

There are two levels of Fellowship within the programme:

  • The Senior Fellowship Programme, addressed to people with a Ph.D. or at least four years of experience after the degree which gives access to doctoral programmes. In both cases, a maximum of ten years of experience after the degree which gives access to doctoral programmes applies.
  • The Junior Fellowship Programme, for holders of at least a Technical Engineer degree (or equivalent) and at most a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) with not more than 4 years of experience. Please note that the Junior Fellowship programme is only open to nationals of CERN Member States.

CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship. Individuals who have held a VIA contract are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.

Nestlé Foundation Research Grants for International Candidates, Switzerland

Nestlé Foundation Research Grants for International Candidates, Switzerland

Types of Research Grants and Support

The Nestlé Foundation offers different award and grant categories, some of them using a modular approach, i.e. the Pilot Grant Program represents the starting grant module for a later Full Grant Research application. The eligibility criteria as well as the Research objectives and topics have to be fulfilled independently from the award category (for further details see section “Specific information for applications”):

A. Research Grants

The Foundation offers different research grant categories, some of them using a modular approach, i.e. the Pilot Grant Program represents actually the starting module for a later Full Grant Research Application. The eligibility criteria as well as the Research objectives and topics have to be fulfilled independently from the grant category.

  • Training Grant
  • Pilot Grant
  • Full Grant (small / large)

 

Grant type Description Budget cadre(in USD)
Training Grant (TG) The Training Grant (TG) Program supports a small research project such as a MSc or PhD thesis project or another training endeavor. Up to 20’000 in total
Pilot Grant (PG) The Pilot Grant PG) Program of the Foundation provides support for pilot research that has a high potential to lead to a subsequent full research project grant. Usually the Foundation does not support nutritional survey research. Often to be able to identify areas of problems for potential intervention one has to collect baseline data. A pilot study (pre-study or baseline study) will create the needed data for a larger research project. The PG program may assist this. The pilot-study and PG usually represent the starting point for a later full research grant application(i.e. a SRG or LRG) to the Foundation. Up to 20’000 in total
Small Research Grant (SRG) The Small Research Grant (SRG) provides support of a small research study. This mayeven represent a continuation of a TG or also a PG. Up to 50’000 in total
Large Research Grant (LRG) Full grant application of a complete research proposal according to the guidelines. Up to 100’000 per year to a maximum of 300’000 for 3 years
Re-Entry Grants (REG) To encourage the return and re-establishment of post-graduate students into their careers in their own countries, the Foundation will support a research program for eligible candidates. The host institution will need to guarantee a post for the returnee and ensure career development within the host institution. Contribution of support to the eligible candidate from the host institution is essential, while support and collaboration from the overseas institution where the candidate trained is helpful. Up to 50,000 in total

 

Training Grants and Pilot Grants run usually over one year to 2 years. Re-Entry grants may run up to 3 years. However none of these awards are renewable. Hence, it is recommended that eligible investigators apply for other categories of awards before the completion of their projects (but with available results from earlier support) for continuing support from a full research grant to avoid any interruption of their research activities.

A previous award does not necessarily imply that a subsequent submission will be automatically accepted. All applications will be reviewed as new applications. A new application must be substantially different from one previously reviewed and have a different title in order to be accepted for review Replacement of the Principal Investigator on any of these awards is not normally permitted.

 

B. Institutional Support

Institutional support involves the support of research or educational projects in specific institutions in low- or lower-middle income countries which contribute to a focused development of capacity and know-how and human resource development in the corresponding institution.

C. enLINK Research grant program

The enLINK research grant program represents research projects initiated by the Nestlé Foundation. External researchers or institutions are invited by the Foundation to submit a research proposal in a specific area. All applications, including those of the enLINK research grant program will undergo internal and external reviewing.

The Nestlé Foundation does not support individual fees for attendance and travel to scientific meetings or courses except when presenting the of results of a research grant already funded by the Nestlé Foundation. We do not consider queries for support to attend a meeting if you are not a grant holder of the Nestle Foundation. The Foundation does in general not support the organization of meetings or conferences and discourages any solicitation of funds for these purposes.
