Scholarship Opportunities in Sweden

The Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS) are awarded to students from selected countries for full-time master’s level studies in Sweden starting in the autumn semester 2016. The scholarships cover both living costs and tuition fees. An estimated 300 scholarships will be available.  

The scholarship application consists of two steps, the first step will be open 1 December 2015 – 20 January 2016, followed by a detailed second step for successful candidates from the first step, 8 – 13 February 2016.

Please note that the first step has been extended and that SI will not be able to announce the results before the deadline for completing your application to university admissions. All candidates must therefore pay the application fee to university admissions before 1 February 2016.
