Programme structure

The main part of the Student Summer Research Fellowship programme at ETH Zurich is devoted to doing research in one of the available areas.

  • Time frame: 1 July – 31 August. Please note that the time and duration of the fellowship is fixed to cover the full two months of July and August.
  • Eligibility. Bachelor’s and master’s students worldwide with an
    expected graduation date earliest during the spring semester the year after the 2-​month fellowship.
  • Research experience. Fellows will pursue a research project that aligns with a chosen area of their interest as part of a research group in our department. This includes interacting and collaborating with group members.
  • Networking and socialising. A number of on-​site socialising events will help fellows to get to know people outside their respective research groups, including current ETH students at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Stipend. Fellows at ETH Zurich will receive a monthly allowance of about CHF 1.750 to cover housing and living expenses. Travel and visa expenses will be covered as well. Students can claim the travel costs against receipts at the beginning of the programme.
  • Accommodation. Affordable housing during the research stay will be organised, once a candidate is accepted into the programme. We will also provide information regarding visa applications (where required).
  • Switzerland. Fellows have the opportunity to explore the vibrant culture of Zurich in the summer as well as the beautiful mountainous landscape of Switzerland in their free time.
