Driving Change in
Early Childhood

With the new Public Policy Fellowship, the Jacobs Foundation gives talented individuals the opportunity to drive forward changes in the political arena, the business community and society at large.

Within nine months the scholarship recipients receive appropriate knowledge of political institutions and processes. This course of study is intended for individuals who are interested in working at the interface of policymaking and business.

Jacobs Foundation scholarship recipients are active in, or have demonstrated interest in, the field of early childhood education and care. Their aim is to use what they have learned in their studies to improve early childhood education and care in Switzerland at the policy, business or societal level.

Interested parties should first register for the CAS program, then submit an essay explaining why they are interested in the Jacobs Foundation scholarship.

The Public Policy Fellowship covers tuition fees of CHF 8’500.- francs per person.
