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.
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.

Scholarship requests must be submitted with the candidate’s application.
When applying to the LLM and the MTJ, you must choose between two tracks: application with scholarship (partial or full) or application without 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.
When applying to the Executive Master, you must indicate, in the application for, whether you apply for a scholarship.
To confirm their wish to be considered for a scholarship, preselected LLM and MTJ students will have to pay a non-refundable deposit of CHF 150.
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:
Finding other sources of funding remains the students’ own responsibility. The Geneva Academy does not provide support in this matter.
Our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights is one of the most innovative and intellectually challenging programmes in international humanitarian law and human rights offered in Europe today.
