Stipendien

Das UBS Center ist ein Hauptsponsor für Spitzentalente aus aller Welt an der Zurich Graduate School of Economics.

Das UBS Center Scholarship, ein Vollstipendium, wird jährlich an herausragende Hochschulabsolventen vergeben, die an der Zurich Graduate School of Economics, am Institut für Volkswirtschaftslehre der Universität Zürich, ihr Doktorandenstudium aufnehmen. Neben diesen Stipendien schafft das UBS Center durch die Finanzierung von neuen, permanenten Lehrstühlen zusätzliche Stellen für den akademischen Nachwuchs. So soll sichergestellt werden, dass die Zurich Graduate School of Economics genug junge Spitzentalente anzieht, um ein anregendes Forschungsumfeld zu schaffen.

Das UBS Center unterstützt das Bestreben der Universität Zürich, eine der Top-Adressen für akademische Nachwuchstalente zu werden, um einen Betrag zur Stärkung des Wirtschafts-, Bildungs- und Wissensstandorts Schweiz zu leisten. Denn Investitionen in höhere Bildung und Forschung sind der Schlüssel zur nachhaltigen Wahrung und Mehrung des wirtschaftlichen Wohlstandes des Landes und seiner Bürger.

UBS Center Scholarship

Scholarships are open to graduates from around the world, they are awarded to candidates on the grounds of outstanding academic merit, and continuing support will be subject to satisfactory completion of course work. While preference may be given to students whose research plans include areas of interest of the UBS International Center of Economics in Society, applications from all areas are welcomed.

Admission to the Zurich Graduate School of Economics is a pre-condition for being considered for a UBS Center Scholarship.

The UBS Center Scholarships are full scholarships, covering living expenses and all fees. Scholarship holders are free to choose their supervisor and have no mandatory duties beyond the completion of the course work and their doctorate. We do however encourage students to contribute to departmental teaching because it is in their own interest to acquire good teaching skills.

The UBS Center Scholarships cover living expenses and all fees. The stipend covering living expenses currently stands at CHF 42'500 per year.

Scholarships are offered to award holders for a period of four years, subject to satisfactory completion of course work.

Applicants need to apply for admission to the Zurich Graduate School of Economics (see details on the departmental webpage) where they indicate that they are applying for a UBS Center Scholarship.
