The University of  Skövde Graduate scholarships are now open for applications from students who are attending a Master’s programme at the University and are liable for tuition fees.
The scholarships are in three categories of scholarship grants:

  • Scholarships for international master’s students liable for tuition fees.
  • Scholarships offered by the Swedish Institute
  • Scholarships for exchange students from the EU, EEA and Switzerland

Worth of Awards
The scholarships are tuition fee waivers of SEK 60 000 / year (50% of the tuition fee), and the amount will be deducted from the tuition fee when you receive the invoice. Please note that you have to be able to finance the rest of the tuition fee yourself and to cover all the living expenses during your stay in Sweden.
Students from these countries can apply for the scholarship: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. See more countries below.
