€18000 Refugee Scholarship at Graduate Institute, for Master Degree Programs

Students who have a refugee status in Switzerland and want to pursue a postgraduate education, can apply for a master degree and for scholarships at the Graduate Institute. Graduate Institute, in Geneva, is a postgraduate institution focusing on world affair studies, like international relations and development. As such, the institute is willing to encourage talented international students from anywhere in the world. And as the migratory crisis increases, the institute offers scholarships dedicated to refugees interested in master degree programs.

In order to be eligible for this scholarship, students must apply for a master degree program at the institute and they must have a Swiss refugee status or a provisional admission for foreigners status. Candidates must provide the university with a letter from the Government, confirming their refugee status and they must be residents in Switzerland. The scholarship is only available for new students who have been accepted in a master or Phd program degree.

The requirement for being admitted to a master degree is having a bachelor degree in social sciences. The requirement for a Phd degree program is a master degree in social sciences. Students must also meet the language criteria of the institute. In order to apply for this scholarship, candidates must mention in their letter of motivation the fact that they apply for the Geneva Refugee Scholarship. The candidates will be selected based on their academic result, letter or motivation, references and financial need. The Refugee Scholarship is a full scholarship, of 20000CHF or approximately €18000, a sum that can cover the living expenses of the student.

The deadline for application is 15 January 2019. Read everything you need to know about this scholarship on the institute’s website.

Postgraduate degree programs are an important step in your education, but they can also be expensive. If you are eligible for a refugee scholarship, it is a good idea to apply for it. If you are not eligible or you do not receive a scholarship, you can turn your attention to university online degrees. Distance learning degrees are less expensive and are perfect for students who have to work while studying. Plus, many university online degrees come with the possibility of applying for scholarships also, which usually consist of tuition fees discounts. Distance learning degrees from accredited online universities are just as valuable as traditional degrees. So there are not so many reasons not to pay attention to this alternative. This is why online education is becoming more and more popular.
