Scholarships allow talented young people who otherwise could not afford it to follow our programmes and subsequently pursue a career in the human rights, humanitarian and justice sectors.

SANDRA POINTET / GENEVA ACADEMY

WHAT WE OFFER

We offer partial and full scholarships for our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (LLM), as well as full scholarships for our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law.

Partial scholarships cover tuition fees. Full scholarships cover tuition fees and living expenses in Geneva for 10 months.

LLM

  • We only provide full scholarships for citizens of non-western countries (full list of eligible countries available here).
  • We also provide every year a partial scholarship for EU citizens.
  • These scholarships are allocated through a highly competitive process based on criteria established by scholarships donors, and which notably include academic merit, extracurricular achievements and the candidate’s financial needs.

APPLICATION

  • Scholarship requests must be submitted with the candidate’s application.
  • When applying, you must choose between two tracks: application with scholarship (partial or full) or application without a scholarship.
  • If you apply to both tracks, your application will be considered under the non-scholarship track. Successful applicants who choose only the non-scholarship track cannot subsequently be considered for a scholarship.

FOR STUDENTS PRESELECTED FOR A SCHOLARSHIP

To secure their places within the programme, selected students with a scholarship will have to pay a non-refundable deposit of CHF 150.

OTHER SOURCES OF FUNDING

Applicants need to make sure that they have adequate means to finance their studies. We encourage students to plan the financial aspects of their programme carefully and well in advance and to explore all opportunities for financing their studies. These include:

  • Government loans
  • Government-related scholarship providers in your home country
  • Non-government scholarship providers in your home country, including private organizations and NGOs
  • UK, Canadian and other government loans
  • Private grant foundations in your home country
  • Loan providers, such as banks and specialized student loan companies
  • Support from your employer in the form of a loan, salary advance, grant or supported leave of absence
  • A combination of funding sources

Finding other sources of funding remains the students’ own responsibility. The Geneva Academy does not provide support in this matter.
