The ThinkSwiss programme provides financial assistance to summer schools at Swiss universities, which allows them to provide travel grants to participants from Canada and the United States.

The participants will benefit from hands-on research, training and exposure to cutting-edge issues within a professional research community. Participants are selected by the respective summer school.

The money is awarded directly to the individual institutions, which are then asked to pass on the travel grants to students enrolled at U.S. and Canadian universities participating in the summer school. This helps the institutions to recruit U.S. and Canadian participants and presents an incentive for those students to spend their summer in Switzerland.
