Excellence and diversity

These Master excellence fellowships, worth CHF 10,000 per semester, are available to students who have obtained their Bachelor’s degree at EPFL, as well as to those who have begun their university studies at another institution. Their objective is to allow students to concentrate on their Master’s studies while also having the opportunity to undertake various activities likely to enrich their professional background and to develop cross-disciplinary skills. Thanks to this financial support, the School also hopes to widen their perspectives by allowing them to choose their internships and first work experiences according to their scientific interest and ambitions.

Application and fellowship renewal

In order to be eligible for this fellowship, interested students must check the corresponding box on their Master’s application form and provide the requested application file.

While the academic background is a crucial point in the evaluation of applications, EPFL also takes into consideration the candidates’ experiences in various areas such as research (publications, prizes or fellowships), entrepreneurship (patent applications, start-up creation), or societal commitment (associative or civic activities, organization of festivals and events). Therefore, all outstanding achievements enriching the students’ profile will be taken into account.

In order for the fellowship to be renewed for the second year of the Master’s degree, students must have obtained at least 50 ECTS credits and have an overall average of 5,0/6.


The Master Excellence Fellowships are part of the “Attract Talent” pillar of the Student Support Program, a philanthropic program that supports the educational journey of students. We would like to warmly thank the Basil Panzer Trust, Dr Liu Shaoming, the Fondation Domaine de Villette, the Fondation Léonard Gianadda Mécénat, FAMSA Foundation, Alan Howard, Anne-Sylvie Visseur Vauclair, Novartis, Squarepoint Foundation as well as all donors who wish to remain anonymous, for their support to our students.
