Each year the Graduate Institute awards several scholarships to Master and PhD students. Awards are based on academic merit and financial need. As an institution concentrating on postgraduate studies, we offer seven Master programmes, two of which are interdisciplinary, as well one PhD programme with six disciplinary specialisations. Our faculty aims to provide our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to engage in deep analysis of the major issues of today’s world while simultaneously preparing them for the challenges their future academic and professional careers hold. Thanks to their international reputation, our master's and PhD degrees are recognised by the University of Geneva with which the Institute has concluded a bilateral convention.
There are three categories of scholarship:
* Full scholarships: with a few exceptions, these are worth CHF 18,000. Recipients are exempt from Graduate Institute tuition fees; however they are still required to pay University of Geneva tuition fees. Some full grants are awarded subject to special conditions (duration of study and/or geographical origin of students).
* Partial scholarships: the value of these grants varies according to the individual needs of the recipient student. These grants do not cover tuition fees which recipients of partial grants are required to pay.
* Tuition scholarships: these grants cover tuition fees for one academic year. They are awarded to exceptional students.
Scholarships are awarded for one year, with the possibility of renewal.
