Master EPFL Excellence Scholarships 2023-2024 to study in Switzerland. EPFL Master Excellence Fellowships 2023-24 is open to international students. The scholarship offers scholarship-level programs in all subjects taught at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The scholarship deadline is April 15, 2023.
EPFL offers a limited number of scholarships to students with outstanding academic backgrounds who apply for a master’s program at the school. The selection process is based on the evaluation of the candidates’ academic records and is conducted by a committee composed of members from different EPFL departments and services.
The competition for these scholarships is very strong, with only about 3% of master’s students receiving the financial support. Some of these scholarships are funded directly by EPFL, while others are awarded through partnerships with foundations or private companies.
The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, also known as the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne , is a public research university located in Lausanne, Switzerland. Specializing in natural sciences and engineering, it is one of the two Swiss federal polytechnic schools.
