The Swiss Benevolent Society is pleased that it can continue its oldest scholarship program, one which offers undergraduate students of Swiss ancestry help with paying college tuition. Students are invited to submit an application which includes an essay examining a topic related to Swiss or Swiss-American culture. This year, students will focus their attention on the broad question of Swiss Culture.

This scholarship program was begun as part of the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Society in 1972. This will be the 51st year that students can apply for scholarship funding from the Society. Education has always been important in both Switzerland and the United States and we hope that our support of students at this important time of their lives will provide a foundation for a richer and more productive life.

The application deadline is May 15, 2024.
