The Swedish Institute, a government agency, administers over 500 scholarships each year for students and researchers that want to come to Sweden to study at a Swedish university.
The number of available scholarships varies from year to year, and competition is strong. Most foreign students in Sweden finance their stay without help from scholarships.
Swedish Institute scholarships for students applying to English-language programmes in Sweden are mainly for master’s level studies or advanced studies/research. There are several different kinds of Swedish Institute scholarships available.
Some universities offer scholarships or tuition waivers directly to high-performing students. Information regarding these scholarships and the application process can be found on university websites.
A number of other organisations, both Swedish and foreign, sponsor scholarships for foreign students in Sweden. You can read more on Study in Sweden
