Swiss Government Excellence Scholarships

An interesting opportunity for research scholarship starting at 2019 is available to post-graduate researchers that are planning to go to Switzerland to do research at doctoral or post-doctoral level. Only candidates nominated by an academic mentor will be considered and must be born after 1982.

Each year the Swiss Confederation awards Government Excellence Scholarships to promote international exchange and research cooperation between Switzerland and over 180 other countries. Recipients are selected by the awarding body, the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS).

The University of Geneva that includes the BCI groups "Electrical Neuroimaging Group" and "Affective Computing and Multimodal Interaction Group" is one of the selected educational institutions.

Additional allowances:
  • The scholarship amounts to a monthly payment of CHF 1,920;
  • Scholarship holders from outside continental Europe receive a flight allowance (lump sum) for a ticket back to their country of origin (provided at the end of the scholarship);
  • Special CHF 300 housing allowance (paid once at the beginning of the scholarship).
