Maintain talent


A gift to enable students who face financial difficulties to continue their studies.

EPFL is committed to supporting talent by offering enrolled Bachelor and Master students Hardship Fellowships which enable individuals facing difficult times to dedicate themselves to their studies by receiving an ad hoc financial support.

Hardship Fellowships for Bachelor and Master Students

This initiative aims at providing support to highly motivated and talented enrolled students whose financial situation changes unexpectedly with an ad hoc fellowship.

In a difficult global economic context, EPFL students are also impacted, therefore our institution is faced with increased support requests which exceed its capacity to respond.

Your support for hardship fellowships will allow our students to continue their educational journey and reach their full potential, without financial worries.

EPFL is deeply involved in efforts to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and to inspire girls and boys and their families by showcasing the breadth of possibilities in scientific fields. As a federal university, EPFL has the great privilege to help shape the STEM educational landscape across Switzerland and positively influence its perception.

EPFL is committed to attracting talent by offering students Excellence Fellowships enabling individuals who have the passion and drive to succeed, to dedicate themselves to their studies by being supported financially for the duration of their course.
