Universite de Lausanne (UNIL) Masters Scholarship 2018-2019

Deadline: November 1, 2018

Applications are open for the Universite de Lausanne Masters Scholarship 2018-2019. The 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 University of Lausanne is a higher teaching and research institution composed of seven faculties where approximately 14,900 students and 3,000 researchers work and study. UNIL is focused on several academic disciplines, especially Medicine, Life Sciences, Geosciences, Environment, Business, Humanities and Social Sciences. An emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary approach, with close cooperation between students, teaching staff, and professors.


  • 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 September 15 to July 15 (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.
