In promoting international cooperation between Switzerland and other countries, the Swiss Government offers scholarship opportunities to international students who want to study abroad. Students who want to study in the top best universities of Switzerland are encouraged to apply for the Switzerland Government Scholarship. The ward is to undertake Masters Degree or PhD Degree from Switzerland.
The scholarship provides young people with financial support to pursue their goals, whether this is pursuing a Master’s or a PhD Degree in the same discipline or in a related field. It helps young people who might not have the possibility for academic scholarships at their university because they are not from rich families or because they have limited financial resources, allowing them to pursue academic scholarship opportunities without concern for their financial future. The scholarship program has been presented by the Federal Department of Education, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) as one of its major support programs toward achieving high academic standards at educational institutions
