École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Excellence Fellowships

EPFL offers a limited number of fellowships at the Master's level to students with outstanding academic records. Some of the fellowships are financed by EPFL directly and others through partnerships with foundations or companies.  

Eligibility

Anyone applying to an EPFL Master's Program is eligible. The selection of candidates and the granting of the fellowships is done based solely on the evaluation of the academic records of the candidates.

What does the fellowship include?

EXTERNAL applications

Fellowships for those candidates include:

  • CHF 16'000 per academic year (split into monthly payments), meaning:

CHF 32'000 for a 2-years Master's(120 credits)

CHF 24'000 for a 1 1/2 year Master's (90 credits)

  • reservation of a room in students accomodation

(Note that accomodation, tuition fees, visa fees, etc. must be paid by the fellowship's holder.)

Cumulating this fellowship with other substantial scholarships isn’t possible. Candidates are required to declare all the scholarships they will receive during their master’s and cases will be evaluated one by one.

INTERNAL applications (EPFL bachelor's degree)

Fellowships for those candidates include:

  • CHF 10'000 (split into 2 payments)
  • A certificate of excellence for the results obtained during their Bachelor's

(Note that accomodation, tuition fees, etc. must be paid by the fellowship's holder.)

Selection

A first screening is done by sections. The attribution of the fellowships is then done by the Excellence Fellowships Committee, presided by Prof. Vandergheynst, Vice-Provost for Education.

To ensure that all fellowships are distributed in case of withdrawals, multiple candidates can be selected and placed on a waiting list. The fellowship is then offered to the main candidate who will be given a deadline (2-4 weeks) for confirming the acceptance of her/his admission and fellowship. In case of withdrawal or absence of response, the fellowship is offered to the first candidate on the waiting list who then get a deadline (1-2 weeks) for confirming the acceptance of her/his admission and fellowship.
