Prospective students Holders of Swiss Matura


The Science Olympiad scholarship of the University of Bern supports outstanding students who have completed middle school who won a gold medal at the national Science Olympiads and who subsequently took part in the international Science Olympiads. The scholarship offers Swiss competitors at the international Olympiads a grant of CHF 2,000, regardless of the degree course, for the first year of their bachelor's degree program at the University of Bern.

In this initiative, the University of Bern honors the achievements of the students who have completed middle school, creates an additional incentive to take part in the national Scientific Olympiads, and makes an important contribution to promoting early career researchers.
