Swiss California Foundation

The Swiss-California Foundation Fellowship Program is designed to give promising Swiss graduates a platform to explore their interests and develop their potential. The educational program is awarded exclusively to talented graduates of the University of St. Gallen. Over the years, the Foundation has gained the trust of many renowned Swiss organizations and companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Through our partners, the Foundation can offer a uniquely broad range of possibilities to our Fellow. The Fellowship is in constant development and it is part of the Fellow's task to shape it in a way that is most useful to them.

The Foundation believes that the exceptional opportunity of the Swiss-California Foundation Fellowship Program should be accessible to all talented graduates of the University of St. Gallen, no matter their background. This is why the Fellow receives a monthly stipend to be able to cover some of the costs of living abroad.

Your application should contain the following:
- CV
- Transcript of grades

Due to the current situation in the Bay Area and the unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation in the United States, the Swiss-California Foundation has decided to postpone the recruiting process for the Fellowship 2020/2021 until further notice.
