"The Fulbright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs, and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship." – J. William Fulbright

Since the program began in 1946, more than 380,000 Fulbrighters have participated in the Fulbright Program coming from and going to more than 160 countries: https://eca.state.gov/fulbright/fulbright-alumni

The Scholarship Service of swissuniversities has the pleasure to inform you that the call for applications for the Fulbright Foreign Student Program and the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for the 2024-2025 academic year is now open.

The Fulbright Foreign Student Program offers students with Swiss citizenship and English proficiency funding to pursue studies at the master’s or Ph.D. level. This can be done at any recognized institution of higher education in the United States in any field of study except medicine (not including Public Health or medical research), dentistry, and veterinary medicine. Candidates from Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts are particularly welcome to apply. The grants are four to ten months in length and not renewable. They are to be used toward the cost of tuition and other academic expenses. In general, a grant for one academic year is about $20,000.

The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program is a non-degree, post-doctoral award program for researchers, university lecturers and experts from academic institutions in Switzerland who wish to conduct post-doctoral research, lecture, or pursue combined lecturing and research in the United States. All candidates must currently be affiliated with one of the universities or research institutions in Switzerland. Candidates from Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts are particularly welcome to apply. Grants are available for the period between August 2024 and July 2025 for periods of a minimum of three months to ten months.
