In order to participate in a CIVIS course and get a stipend, you must be a registered student at Stockholm University, where you intend to graduate.
Students who receive any other grants from the EU or the Swedish Council for Higher Education (Universitets- och högskolerådet), e.g. Sida or SU Scholarship Scheme, are not allowed to apply for a CIVIS scholarship.
You apply directly to the organizing university. The selection and admission are done by the course coordinators.
Information about the application process can be found on the respective website:
