UNIL Masters Scholarship

Masters Scholarships are scholarships for excellence awarded, exclusively to students who have graduated from a foreign university and whose academic results are of a very high level. UNIL grants around ten scholarships a year. The scholarship is granted for the minimum statutory period of the programme chosen by the student. It amounts to CHF 1,600 per month from 15 September to 15 July (or 10 months a year) for the complete duration of the masters (one and a half years or two years depending on the chosen masters), with the exception of cases of definitive failure after the first year.

Please consult the procedure to follow regarding the certified copies (see information in the blue box). The sealed envelope with the certified copies of the university must be sent to the following address within the deadline of November 1st (post mark), but only if the online application was filled in and sent successfully.
