Please note that only scholarship applications from students admitted for a Master's programme commencing in the autumn semester at Stockholm University will be considered. Priority will be given to students with Stockholm University as their first choice in the national application rounds. Stockholm University scholarships cover tuition fees only, which means that students will need to cover their own living costs.
