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). 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 provide, every year, a partial scholarship for EU citizens.
We only provide full and partial scholarships for citizens of non-western countries.
Partial and full scholarships are allocated through a highly competitive process based on academic merit, extra-curricular achievements and the candidate’s financial needs. Applicants from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States and Western Europe can only be considered for partial scholarships.
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 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.
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.
