Being able to train as a Jungian analyst in Zurich, and especially at an institute that offers a daily schedule of coursework and colloquia throughout two regular academic semesters, is a dream that should not be considered impossible because it is beyond the financial reach of gifted and qualified but not financially privileged students. It is crucial that this dream be realized. The purpose of the foundation is to ensure this possibility by supporting the work of The International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich (ISAPZURICH) and by providing financial assistance to students who show promise of excellence as future analysts.

Jungian International Training Zurich (JITZ) was created in 2008 by several members of AGAP (Association of Graduate Analytical Psychologists, a member society of the IAAP), who wanted a vehicle through which they and others would be able to provide tax-deductible financial support for full-time, English language Jungian psychoanalytic training in Zurich. This type of training has been an historical tradition in Zurich since 1948, and it is maintained today by the International School of Analytical Psychology (ISAPZURICH), a training institute founded by AGAP in 2004.

In addition to soliciting private donations, JITZ has sponsored an annual forum / conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA since 2011 featuring topics and speakers related to its overarching theme: Civilization in Transition. Proceeds from this event become part of JITZ funds for assisting students’ training at ISAPZURICH.

JITZ has contributed to the quality of training at ISAPZURICH in several ways: by subsidizing filmed interviews with a number of senior training analysts for the historical archives; by subsidizing the amount Diploma Candidates can earn as part of their training when providing analytic services to clients with limited means; by setting up a pictures archive. Other proposals for enhancing the quality of training are regularly considered by JITZ throughout the year as the organization strives to stay closely attuned to the needs and desires of students and faculty.

Please consider contributing to this important mission by designating a portion of your year-end charitable giving to the Foundation. Your tax-deductible donation will be used to support and enrich the training of our students, ensuring that our faculty can produce the next generation of Jungian analysts.

Financial Support for ISAPZURICH Students

Financial assistance from JITZ to students at ISAP comes in the form of loans, not scholarships, and is limited to the amount of tuition. These loans are granted on a semester by semester basis. If you are a student in need of financial support for your training and you have been a Matriculated Auditor and/or in the Diploma Program for at least two semesters at ISAP, you may apply as follows:

Provide a letter clarifying the amount of assistance and for which semester, also two letters of recommendation from ISAPZURICH Faculty other than your analyst. Indicate your interest to JITZ Board representative, Margot Estabrook Stienstra, at, and she will assist you in submitting your application.
