Anyone know about scholarships for returning Swiss nationals?

I am half Swiss have New Zealander and have both passports.
Ive lived in New Zealand and have only recently moved.
I've come to Switzerland to take up a masters degree and I am currently studying.
Its expensive, I was wondering if anyone knew places i could apply for financial assistance?
I was thinking because I am a Swiss national returning to Switzerland, there might be something for people in this situation...
Does anyone know if this is exists?

This educationsuisse.ch link might assist you to locate a stipendium:

The Auslandschweizer-Organisation's website might also be of interest:

Here all the cantons scholarship institustions:

There are also private schoolarships. But they are sometimes hard to find.
Be careful, there are scholarship "search engines". Most of them cost money, some of them are not really helpful: http://www.srf.ch/sendungen/kassenst...fuer-viel-geld

Unfortunatly, I do not know which of those who exists are helpful and which a pure crap.

The website of your canton will have a list of all private scholarships as well, Ticino at least does.
Then there are public scholarships and you can also get a zero interest loan from the canton.
I don't know whether social assistance would be of use in your case, since you are studying, but you would have to give it back anyway so better get a loan I guess.
