The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation issues this warning regarding false advertisements for Swiss government scholarships sent by email or on social media: Fraudsters are offering fake scholarships in an attempt to get money transferred (e.g. by claiming that this money is required for visa or social insurance costs). The application process for a Swiss government scholarship is free of charge.
