P.S. Warning against a fake scholarship offer using the name of the Swiss Government Scholarships (phishing): The Swiss authorities issue this warning against fake Swiss Federal Government Scholarships advertised by e-mail. The Swiss Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS) never advertises its scholarships by e-mail. The scholarships are generally directly managed by the Swiss representation in the respective country. The Swiss authorities recommend to never answer to these e-mails and above all not to send any money.
