Through the Grants Office, the University of Music (SUM) offers assistance to students who are experiencing serious financial difficulties and need financial support. Grants are awarded by various institutions, in particular foundations. In addition, starting from the 2018/19 academic year, some competitions for grants will be launched. The relevant information will appear on the website shortly.
Through a special Committee called ESKAS (Eidgenössische Stipendienkommission ausländischen Studierenden Universitätsstipendien), the Swiss Confederation also provides study grants to foreign students from a list of countries drawn up by the Swiss Confederation and offers students the opportunity to study at a Swiss University School for at least one year; the application must be sent directly to the Swiss Embassy of the student's country of origin.
