Research internships for visiting Master students - MaRS programme
The Masters Research Scholarship (MaRS) programme provides short-term scholarships to support visiting Masters students to work on research projects within the Faculty of Informatics.
Participating students visit USI for up to one semester to work on a research project under the guidance of an USI Faculty member with the objective of applying the work towards a Master's thesis at the student's home university.
Each scholarship recipient will receive CHF 5'000 to help cover travel and living expenses for the visiting student for the duration of their stay.
The coordinators are Prof. Patrick Eugster and Prof. Fernando Pedone.
The MaRS programme is sponsored by the Hasler Foundation.
Applications must be sent by 1 October 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- transcript of grades (Master)
- support letter by a professof of the home university
- motivation letter
- passport scan.
Results will be communicated by 1 November 2020.
