Scholarships at the University of Basel

Businessman give scholarshipThe University of Basel, located in the heart of Europe in famously neutral Switzerland has been home to many famous minds. As the country’s oldest higher education institution it has produced great people ranging from Erasmus, Nietzsche, and Jung. Its location and the history of the country make studying at the university very attractive. It is able to provide three forms of grants and scholarships to its students.

The first form of money for college provided is through cantonal grants and student loans. Given that the student’s parents and/or canton (the name for a federal state within the country of Switzerland) are held accountable for his or her funding, these educational grants are only available to Swiss nationals. In this instance, scholarship applications must be made directly with through the local canton.

The second form is for students who are approaching their year of graduation. This form of grant for education is secondary to other sources of funding, both public and private. These are open to people pursuing undergraduate degrees, masters degrees, or doctorate degrees who have three semesters left to their expected graduation date.

The third and final form is exchange grants. There are five such grants available to students of the university. The first of the college scholarships is the ERASMUS program which is an educational grant for up to two semesters at a participating university. Top-up grants identical aside from the fact that they are a college program for universities outside of the EU. Recipients of government grants are selected by a committee of rectors. EUCOR reimburses travel expenses to courses and lectures at participating institutions. Finally, other forms of educational scholarships are viewable physically at one of the university’s notice boards on campus.

Further information seems to only be available to the initiated at the University of Basel. This seems to reflect certain elements of Swiss culture. With each canton having its own identity within the small country, and it being very decentralized, having relatively little information on each form of support, particularly in any one of the three national languages aside from German reflect this.
