ES Alumni Student Fund

The ES Alumni Student Fund was established in May 2016, to celebrate the English Department's 125-year anniversary as well as the founding of the Alumni Chapter English Studies.


The ES Alumni Student Fund supports academic and study-related projects by Bachelor and Master students of English Literature and/or Linguistics. Examples include:

  • student research projects;
  • the Blueprint Masquerades (English Department drama group);
  • small travel bursaries (e.g. for field work, or to attend an academic conference);
  • the Shakespeare Week;
  • course-related excursions (max. CHF 50.- per student).

An overview of projects supported by the ES Alumni Student Fund is available in the subsection on Past Projects.

Students wishing to apply for support can consult the section on Application Guidelines.


Donations to the ES Alumni Student Fund are of course very much appreciated. If you would like to donate, you can send us an email or simply use the donation form.
