Purpose

 

The Heyning-Roelli Foundation provides financial assistance to financially underprivileged students for travel related costs.

 

Target Group

Bachelor- and Mastersstudents who wish to participate in an exchange program for one or two semesters at a partner university. Exchange programs are the Swiss-European Mobility Programme (formerly Erasmus) as well as other bilateral contracts between Swiss universities and foreign universities. In these programs students stay enrolled at their home university and continue their studies at the home university after their stay abroad. At the partner university students have to be enrolled as exchange students. In addition, PhD students and students, who are doing a double-degree or a joint-degree, are not supported by the Heyning-Roelli Foundation.
