Hello and welcome! Since 1920, the Swiss-American Society (SAS) has been dedicated to the friendship between the USA and Switzerland. Our main priority is the cultural and economic exchange. More about us

EVENTS

Once a month, the members of SAS meet for a Luncheon at the centrally-located “Haus zum Rüden” on the Limmatquai in Zurich. Various interesting personalities from business, politics, culture and science are invited for a in-depth presentation and discussion round.  Our program

SCHOLARSHIPS

Studying or spending a semester in the USA is a dream of many students. Every year we award scholarships totaling between 15,000 and 20,000 Swiss francs. Five to seven students from Switzerland benefit from our scholarships. There is a separate scholarship fund for lawyers who would like to study at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
