Incentive and award: the Hirschmann grant for master's degree students attending Swiss universities of applied sciences
The driving principle behind the Hirschmann Foundation is the promotion of education and training. On that basis it makes one-off grants available to students pursuing a consecutive master's degree at a Swiss university of applied sciences. Those in receipt of a grant are expected to pursue their studies with an above-average sense of purpose and demonstrate social engagement.
The maximum grant available to students is CHF 10,000, although it is usually in the amount of CHF 5,000. The Hirschmann Foundation awards between 40 and 50 grants a year.
Applications are considered twice a year: the submission dates are 15 April and 15 October.
