Alfred Werner Scholarships

The Alfred Werner Fund of the Swiss Chemical Society Foundation invites scholarship applications to carry out Master degree studies in Chemistry or Biochemistry at a Swiss University or a Federal Institute of Technology. The Foundation offers up to twelve scholarships of CHF 30’000 as a onetime contribution to the cost of the 2-years Master study program. This opportunity targets foreign students in the top 10% of their undergraduate programs.

Master degree courses in Switzerland are generally given in English.
Candidates must apply for admission to a M.Sc. program at a Swiss University or a Federal Institute of Technology (contacts on our website), and, at the same time request the institute to support them for an Alfred Werner Scholarship.
Each Swiss University and Federal Institute of Technology will submit to the Foundation ranked nominations by the given deadline. Since the admission and selection process may take as long as two months, candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Direct applications from candidates to the Foundation are not admitted.
The final selection committee includes representatives of the funding companies, Swiss Universities and Federal Institutes of Technology.
