Fulbright Scholarships

As the most prestigious international exchange program in the world today, the Fulbright Program has been instrumental in fostering mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other nations for seventy years. Since its creation, the Fulbright Program has offered over 360,000 participants the opportunity to learn about the political and economic institutions and cultures of another country, exchange ideas, and conduct joint projects that serve the public good. Upon completion of their year-long programs, Fulbright alumni join an extensive network of engaged, influential citizens of the world.

The U.S. Fulbright Swiss Scholarship Student Program has been active for many years, providing scholarships for Swiss students to study in the United States and for U.S. students to study in Switzerland. The program continues to be an important tool for the U.S. and the Swiss governments to promote mutual understanding, as evidenced by their ongoing financial and administrative support of the Fulbright program.  In addition to government support, generous private sector donations permit an average of 10 grants to be awarded each academic year in support of Swiss participants.

We are pleased to announce the addition of the Swiss Scholars Program. Awards are available for qualified faculty of Swiss universities and institutes of higher education for up to 10 months of teaching or research at a U.S. institution.
