Bilateral scholarships are funded by exchange programmes based on formal or informal agreements between Sweden and other countries under which foreign students and researchers are given the opportunity to study in Sweden. The agreements are reciprocal; Swedish students are also funded for studies abroad.
Am I eligible for a bilateral scholarship?
At present, Sweden has bilateral exchange programmes with the following countries: China, Italy, and Japan. If you are a national from one of these countries, you are eligible.
Fields of Study
Scholarships are awarded for the purpose of research, university studies, or training. There is no general limitation with regard to subject or academic discipline.
How do I apply?
The application procedure differs for each country, and you will need to contact the appropriate authority listed at the bottom of this page for specific instructions and application deadlines.
However, in all cases, you are responsible for being accepted into the academic institution, school, or training programme you wish to attend. It is therefore recommended that you make your application to that institution well in advance of the scholarship deadline.
Submit your application to the appropriate authority in your home country, listed at the bottom of this page. Do not send applications to the Swedish Institute. If you do, your application will not be processed.
Deadlines vary, but in general, you should send in your application approximately a year in advance of the start of the studies you want to pursue. If your programme runs from September to June, you should apply for funding via this scholarship programme by sometime around the previous September.
You must be fluent in English or proficient in Swedish.
The amount of the scholarship is SEK 9000 per month for master's degree studies, SEK 15000 per month for PhD students and SEK 18000 for postdoctoral researchers. Please note that scholarships for master's degree studies do not cover tuition fees. The scholarship is designed to cover the living expenses for one person only. There are no grants awarded for family members travelling to and from Sweden. The scholarship award period cannot be extended.
In most countries, specific authorities will receive your application. Swedish embassies will supply additional information upon request. For specific instructions and application deadlines, consult the appropriate authority listed below:
