Excellent students both from the ETH and from other universities (national and international) wishing to pursue their Master’s degree at ETH Zurich;
Very good result in their Bachelor’s. Students must belong to the best 10 percent of their Bachelor’s programme.
ETH Zurich supports excellent students wishing to pursue a Master’s degree at ETH:
Under the Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme (ESOP) students receive a special scholarship for the duration of their programme as well as specific supervision. The scholarship covers the full study and living costs during their Master’s degree course. The Excellence Scholarship consists of a grant covering living and study expenses (CHF 11,000 per semester) as well as a tuition fee waiver.
The application period for an Excellence Scholarship for Master programmes starting in 2017 lasts from 1 November until 15 December 2016.
Who can apply?
The scholarship programmes are open to excellent students both from the ETH and from other universities (national and international) wishing to pursue their Master’s degree at ETH Zurich. The prerequisite is a very good result in their Bachelor’s. Students must belong to the best 10 percent of their Bachelor’s programme.
The application consists of
- a letter of motivation
- a pre-proposal for your Master's thesis (see the separate guidelines on how to write a pre-proposal (PDF, 21 KB))
- letters of recommendation from two professors
All information provided in the application must be complete and correct. The pre-proposal for the Master's thesis must be developed by the applicant him/herself and use established scientific citation practice.
Plagiarism, negligent or intentional misinformation will lead to exclusion from the admission process or - if discovered later - to the revocation of the admission and of any scholarship.
If you are applying for more than one Master’s programme, please submit a separate application form for each degree programme.
You can only apply for an Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme or a Master Scholarship Programme if you, at the same time, apply for a Master's degree programme at ETH Zurich (or if you, as an ETH Bachelor student, continue with a consecutive Master's degree programme). If you are already enrolled in a Master's degree programme at ETH Zurich, you are not eligible to apply for this scholarship anymore.
The scholarship begins when the student commences his or her Master’s degree and is awarded for the regular duration of the Master’s programme (three or four semesters). It is awarded independently of the scholarship holder’s financial situation. The Master Scholarship Programme requires a financial contribution from the scholarship holder.
The applications are evaluated by the Admissions Committees of the respective Master’s programmes. The final decision for awarding scholarships in the Excellence Scholarship & Opportunity Programme and in the Master Scholarship Programme rests with the Rector of the ETH. The number of annual scholarships depends on the availability of funds.
Freedom and individual responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and open-mindedness: ETH Zurich stands on a bedrock of true Swiss values.
