Scholarships and loans

In order to promote equal opportunities in education, Switzerland provides financial support to students. You can apply for financial support from the canton if neither you nor your parents are able to finance your education. 

The amount of support to which you are entitled is set out in legal stipulations and is primarily determined by the financial situation of your parents. For more information, please contact the Erziehungsdirektion (Educational Directorate) of the canton of Bern.
