Do you want to study in Switzerland?

Introduction.

The E4D Continuing Education Scholarship Program was created for the purpose of trying to make the world a better place. The way that the scholarship program does that is by aiming to enhance the knowledge and skills of future leaders from low-income countries. We have to mention that this all wouldn’t be possible without the Sawiris Foundation for Social Development which is providing financial support to the scholarship program.
