In collaboration with Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission, the Swiss Government has initiated the ‘Excellence Scholarship for Pakistani Students’ for the 2024-25 academic year to bolster international academic relations and stimulate joint research projects.
The Swiss Confederation annually offers this notable scholarship, inviting researchers and scholars from over 180 countries to explore educational and research avenues in Switzerland. Targeted at postgraduate researchers with at least a master’s degree, the program offers doctoral or postdoctoral studies opportunities in Switzerland’s beautiful settings. The Federal Commission handles the selection of recipients for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS).
Candidates can choose several study pathways, including one-year post-master research and three-year PhD courses.
The embassy’s application deadline is set for September 30th, with more information available on the official website. This initiative reflects Switzerland’s commitment to advancing academic excellence and fostering international research collaborations, offering Pakistani students.
