The SAA is aware that the SAA programs may be a financial burden to younger practitioners or colleagues from countries outside of Switzerland and has, therefore, decided to award one grant for the 2016/17 CAS in Arbitration. The winner of the 2016 SAA Grant will be entitled to a full waiver of the program tuition fee of CHF 9,900, which will significantly reduce the costs of participation. The applicant will, nonetheless, have to bear his/her travel and accommodation expenses.
The SAA reserves complete and full discretion to award the 2016 SAA Grant to applicants who fulfill the below criteria:
- Admitted to practice in his/her jurisdiction;
- Excellent academic qualifications;
- Proof showing lack of financial means to register for the program otherwise;
- 1 letter of recommendation outlining the applicant's qualification;
- 1 short outline (1-2 pages) about the applicant's interest and experience in international arbitration;
- Curriculum Vitae (CV) or a résumé.
The application to the 2016 SAA Grant does not entitle the applicant to make any legal claims against the SAA and/or its Council members and/or to be awarded the grant. The 2016 SAA Grant is at the full discretion of the SAA.
All information submitted by the applicant will be treated with utmost confidentiality. Applications should be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is January 31, 2016.
The winner of the 2016 SAA Grant will be informed by the SAA by February 29, 2016. For any further information, please revert to email@example.com .
