North-South Mobility Grants

The North-South Cooperation at the University of Zurich promotes exchange of knowledge and intercultural mutual learning with universities and research institutes in the Global South. It supports sustainable projects in research and teaching that aim at a reciprocal partnership between the cooperating institutions and individuals.

In collaboration with the Oeuvre St.-Justin Fribourg and the Solidarity Fund for Foreign Students in Zurich, the North-South Cooperation of the University of Zurich (UZH) is awarding up to three grants per semester for mobility students from universities in the Global South. The grants can be used to study one or two semesters at UZH during the academic year 2021-22.

Grants are only awarded if a professor at UZH guarantees supervision and has a strong interest in working with the mobility student’s home university. Applications from students with no invitation letter from a UZH professor will not be proceeded.

Please note: the scholarship application deadline for the academic year 2021/22 has expired. There will be no call for scholarships for the academic year 2022/23.
