Silvio Buchmeier, Swiss Fulbright Scholar 2019

“Living and studying in the U.S. as a Fulbright Scholar has been a life-changing experience for me. Meeting some of the most world-renowned composers at NYU, who were to come to visit basically every week, has been one of these life-changing experiences”.

– Silvio Buchmeier studied film music composition at NY Steinhardt

Mathias Bonmarin, Swiss Fulbright Scholar 2018

“This was definitely a fantastic opportunity and an experience I will remember for the rest of my life! Back in Switzerland, I plan to setup a new program to support young Medtech entrepreneurs. In particular, I would like to implement the approach called “Biodesign,” which has been developed at Stanford University and has flourished since then in the U.S.”.

– Mathias Bonmarin was a visiting professor at University of Cincinnati in Ohio
