Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Scholarships 2021

Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Scholarships 2021

The Geneva Academy offers partial and full scholarships for its LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (LLM) and Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (M TJ). We also offer one partial scholarship for our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict (Executive Master).

Partial scholarships cover tuition fees. Full scholarships cover tuition fees and living expenses in Geneva for 10 months.

LLM

We only provide full scholarships for citizens of non-western countries. Applicants from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States and Western Europe cannot, therefore, be considered for a full scholarship.

We also provide, every year, a partial scholarship for EU citizens.

These scholarships are allocated through a highly competitive process based on criteria established by scholarships donors, and which notably include academic merit, extracurricular achievements and the candidate’s financial needs.

APPLICATION

Scholarship requests must be submitted with the candidate’s application.

When applying, you must choose between two tracks: application with scholarship (partial or full) or application without a scholarship.

If you apply to both tracks, your application will be considered under the non-scholarship track. Successful applicants who choose only the non-scholarship track cannot subsequently be considered for a scholarship.

FOR STUDENTS PRESELECTED FOR A SCHOLARSHIP

To secure their places within the programme, selected students with scholarship will have to pay a non-refundable deposit of CHF 150.

MTJ

We only provide full and partial scholarships for citizens of non-western countries.

These scholarships are allocated through a highly competitive process based on criteria established by scholarships donors, and which notably include academic merit, extracurricular achievements and the candidate’s financial needs.

OTHER SOURCES OF FUNDING

Applicants need to make sure that they have adequate means to finance their studies. We encourage students to plan the financial aspects of their programme carefully and well in advance and to explore all opportunities for financing their studies. These include:

  • Government loans
  • Government-related scholarship providers in your home country
  • Non-government scholarship providers in your home country, including private organizations and NGOs
  • UK, Canadian and other government loans
  • Private grant foundations in your home country
  • Loan providers, such as banks and specialized student loan companies
  • Support from your employer in the form of a loan, salary advance, grant or supported leave of absence
  • A combination of funding sources

Finding other sources of funding remains the students’ own responsibility. The Geneva Academy does not provide support in this matter.
