Collegium Helveticum

The Collegium Helveticum is committed to intellectual freedom and the freedom to question and exchange ideas. The privilege of academic freedom enjoyed by the fellows at the Collegium Helveticum creates a responsibility beyond the local institutional framework. Therefore, the Collegium decided in 2022 to join both the international and the Swiss Scholars at Risk networks and reach out to scholars and scientists facing the threat of political persecution. With the financial support of the OPO Foundation and the Foundation for Basic Research in Human Sciences (SHG Foundation), the Collegium can offer fellowships for scholars at risk until funds are exhausted.
