The Master Scholarship consists of a partial stipend for living and study expenses (CHF 6,000 per semester) as well as a tuition fee waiver. The department can additionally provide a scholarship of CHF 1,500 – 3,000 per semester or offer an assistantship from the second semester onwards (with a payment of CHF 600 per month).
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.
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).
Applicants must submit an application form, a letter of motivation, a pre-proposal for your Master's thesis, and letters of recommendation from two professors. Application deadline for the Excellence Scholarship for Master programmes starting in 2016 is 15 December 2015 (date of postmark).
