Scholarships and other funding options for master's programmes at Stockholm University.
Stockholm University Scholarship Scheme
The Scholarship Scheme at Stockholm University is aimed at especially qualified students and covers the whole tuition fee for a Master's programme at Stockholm University. This means that students will need to cover their living costs.
Eligibility and selection criteria
To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must be:
- a citizen from a country outside of EU/EEA/Switzerland and be required to pay tuition fees for studies.
- admitted to a Master's programme at Stockholm University in the first (international) admission round.
The selection will be based on the academic merits of the applicants and priority will be given to students with Stockholm University as their first choice on universityadmissions.se.
When the Notification of selection results is published in the beginning of April, eligible students will be sent an electronic application form to the email address given in their application to universityadmissions.se.
The Scholarship recipients and other applicants will be informed of the results by the end of April.
The application period for students admitted to Master's programmes starting in the autumn 2021 is: 9 - 12 April 2021.
Swedish Institute Scholarships
The Swedish Institute (SI), a government agency, offers scholarships each year for international students. Only students with citizenship from certain selected countries are eligible for an SI scholarship.
Scholarships in Arbitration Law
Two scholarships are also usually available to specifically study the master programme in International Commercial Arbitration Law (ICAL). These are the Stockholm Arbitration Scholarship for China (SASC) and the Swedish Arbitration Association (SAA) Scholarship. These scholarships cover the cost of the tuition and are therefore a funding opportunity for students with citizenships outside the EU/EEA. When available, the application round for the scholarships opens in March and closes in April. More information about the scholarship application is available on the website of the Department of Law.
