Scholarship opportunity

To reach individuals from around the world regardless of their financial status, we provide competitive individual scholarships to cover tuition fees and basic costs of living in Switzerland. These are provided by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Global Programme Food Security, through the CABI-led Plantwise programme. Therefore, the scholarship can only be provided to applicants who have been involved through a specific function in a country-specific Plantwise programme. Please explain shortly your function (e.g. plant doctor, data manager, cluster coordinator) within the Plantwise programme in your letter of motivation.

Students wishing to apply for a scholarship must be involved in the Plantwise programme and hold a passport from one of following Plantwise countries: Brazil, Cambodia, China, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Barbados, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Peru, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Ghana, Ethiopia, Malawi, Burkina Faso, Zambia, Mozambique, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar.

Those accepted to the programme will be offered a place to attend and the scholarship will be decided separately. We welcome individuals and organisations who wish to contribute to funding this innovative programme, thereby supporting the growth and knowledge of high calibre individuals around the world. Please note that the scholarship can be offered only to individuals and not to any family members.
