SCS Foundation 

The Alfred Werner Fund was established in 2014 and continues the initiatives and projects of the former foundation "Stiftung für Stipendien auf dem Gebiete der Chemie".


Alfred Werner Master's Student Scholarships

The SCS Foundation invites scholarship applications from students to carry out Master of Science (MSc) degree studies in Chemistry or Biochemistry at a Swiss University or at one of the Federal Institutes of Technology.

Eight to ten Alfred Werner scholarships in the amount of CHF 25'000 are granted every year since 2013. The program is supported by the Swiss chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as by a number of private donors.

The program targets students from foreign countries ranking in the top 10% of their bachelor of science (BSc) programs. The goal of the program is to support talented students to perform their MSc studies in Switzerland.

The SCS Foundation actively supports the integration of the Alfred Werner Scholars, and also offers visits at the program-supporting industrial partners.
