Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETZ Zurich) in Zurich falls Master’s and Doctoral students to apply for ETH4D Visiting Student Grants. Generally, ETH4D Visiting Student Grants are the opportunity for students to participate in the fully funded research in Switzerland for a period of 2-3 months.


The ETH4D Visiting Student Grants aim at bringing a collaborating doctoral or master student from low and middle-income countries to ETH Zurich for a research stay of 2-3 months in Switzerland. Moreover, the student will spend the exchange stay at an ETH partner laboratory to learn new methodologies, technics or develop his/her research project in a new academic setting. Moreover, she or he will expand her or his academic network.


The ETH4D Visiting Student Grants in Switzerland covers the following expenses up to a maximum of 10’000 CHF

  • Living allowance for the duration of the research stay: 2.3k CHF per month.
  • Economy roundtrip ticket (max. 2k CHF) as well as visa fees


Eligible are doctoral or advanced masters students who are registered at a university or research institute in a country listed in the OECD/DAC list 2018-​​2020. However, students from lower-income countries preferred. Furthermore, it is a requirement that the doctoral or master student and the hosting ETH professor have been in contact before the research stay.


The ETH professor hosting the doctoral/MSc student should send the application as the applications directly sent by the student will not be considered. However, the application needs to be sent in one single pdf document to [email protected]. The deadline for the next round of applications is 30 April 2020.
