Grants

[1] Bourse de la Société Académique de Genève (SACAD)
University of Geneva | 02.07.2020
10 000 CHF | [grant]

The purpose of SACAD’s scholarships is to encourage the next generation of Geneva academics, originating from the University itself. As a result, insofar as the regulations of the various funds allow, SACAD reserves its scholarships for candidates who have completed their studies in Geneva and who wish to complete their training abroad or possibly in another Swiss university. Exceptionally, scholarships may be granted to allow a doctoral candidate, who has completed all the elements of his or her thesis, to finish writing it. The duration of these scholarships is six months maximum.

[2] ENS-NYU Scholarship
École Normale Supérieure (ENS-Paris) | 01.04.2015
3 500 USD

An agreement has been made between the Philosophy Department of the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris (ENS) and the Philosophy Department of New York University (NYU): each year the philosophy department at NYU hosts one philosophy student from ENS for the whole academic year, or two philosophy students from ENS for one semester each. The selection of students hosted by NYU is done by the philosophy department of the ENS in consultation with the NYU philosophy department. The selection depends on the students’ advancement in their chosen field of research, their ability to benefit from the NYU department’s curriculum (including their proficiency in English), and the capacity of the NYU department to find an appropriate advisor for them. The philosophy department at NYU will grant the ENS students a $ 7,000.00 fellowship for two semesters, or a $3,500.00 fellowship for one semester, as a complement to the salary they will continue to receive from ENS.
