FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR INTERNSHIPS ABROAD
Did you know? The Swiss European Mobility Programme (SEMP) provides funding for Graduate Institute students who participate in internships outside of Switzerland. To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:
- The internship must be outside of Switzerland, primarily inside Europe, although some funding is available for internships anywhere in the world.
- The internship must be between 2 - 12 months in duration.
- The student must complete the internship on location, not online.
- The student must obtain credits for the internship.
The amount of the funding is 440 CHF per month for internships in Europe, and 500 CHF per month for internships outside of Europe.
There are a limited number of Institute students per academic year who can benefit from SEMP funding. Applications will be assessed on a first-come first-served basis. You must complete your application for the funding before the start date of your internship.
If you have any questions, or if you have secured an internship abroad and want to apply for SEMP funding, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
