ThinkSwiss Research Scholarships support American undergraduate and graduate students conducting research at Swiss public universities or research institutes for two to three months. Each year, 15 research scholarships are offered. These scholarships provide a monthly stipend approximately $1,000 US for a period of 2 to 3 months to conduct research at a public Swiss university or research institute. The scholarship is open to outstanding students in all fields with an interest in conducting research in Switzerland. By accepting this scholarship, award winners agree to participate in a blog to share their experiences during your research stay in Switzerland. After their return to the U.S. they also agree to carry out at least one activity as student “ambassador” to promote Swiss research. Candidates must be currently enrolled at an accredited U.S. college or university and have completed their second year by the time their research visit in Switzerland begins.  The application requires written confirmation of support from a researcher at a Swiss university or research institute.  While French, German, or Italian language skills are not required, knowledge of any of these languages will be helpful.  The working language will generally be English.
