Dear Colleagues,
Please share with your students, this looks like a terrific opportunity for students to spend summer in Switzerland working on research projects with Swiss faculty and research centers. It is open to all majors at the graduate level and undergraduates at the (upper) sophomore,junior, and senior level.
2013 ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship

ThinkSwiss offers 15 scholarships for a research stay in Switzerland. This scholarship program supports highly motivated and qualified U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to do research at a public Swiss university or research institute for 2 to 3 months. The scholarship is open to students of all fields.

To apply for a ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship, you must:

  *   Be currently enrolled at an accredited U.S. university/college
  *   Be a graduate student or an undergraduate student who will have completed your sophomore year by the time the research stay in Switzerland begins
  *   Provide a written confirmation from a professor at a Swiss university that he/she will accept you for a research stay in his/her group

This program does not provide health, accident or liability insurance. Applicants must make sure that they have insurance coverage applicable for their stay in Switzerland.
While German, French or Italian language skills are not required for the research stay in Switzerland, knowledge of any of these languages would be helpful in daily life. The working language will generally be English.

The ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship program provides a monthly scholarship of CHF 1,050 (approx. USD 1000) for a period of 2 to 3 months (CHF 3,150 maximum). By accepting this scholarship, you agree to participate in a blog to share your experiences during your research stay in Switzerland. After your return to the U.S. you also agree to involve yourself in some limited activities as student "ambassador" to promote Swiss research. The scholarship will be paid at the end of your research stay and after your final report has been received.

Application deadline: March 31, 2013
