Who is eligible?
The scholarships are intended for guest students or researchers belonging to any of the above mentioned countries and target groups, applying for full-time temporary studies/research in Sweden. There is no age limit for the scholarship holders.
However, you are not eligible for this scholarship if any of the following is true:
You have already lived in Sweden for two years of more when the scholarship period is due to begin.

You have a Swedish work permit and you are not an EU citizen.
You are applying for a scholarship at PhD level but you are not enrolled in ongoing PhD studies at your home university.
You are applying for a scholarship at Postdoctoral level, but you do not hold any PhD degree.
New applicants will be given priority over applicants that have previously been awarded a scholarship from the SI for study or research at a Swedish university.
Scholarship holders from ODA countries will receive travel support in connection with the scholarship. The travel grant is a lump sum given only once. However, PhD students on a sandwich setup from ODA recipient countries will be given a travel grant in connection to every research visit to Sweden (maximum four visits divided over two years).
Candidates from the following countries receive SEK 5 000: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia.
Candidates from remaining ODA recipient countries receive SEK 10 000.
Scholarship holders are insured by the Swedish State Group Insurance against illness and accident during the scholarship period. For citizens of EU member states and other Convention countries the insurance applies with certain limitations.
Scholarship periods are fixed to 6 or 12 months, except for the PhD sandwich setup that entails a maximum of 12 months to be used between September 1, 2009 and August 31, 2011, i.e. over a period of two years with maximum 2 research visits per year. The scholarship periods cannot be altered or prolonged.
The scholarship is designed to cover the cost of living for the scholarship holder only. There are no grants available for family members. No bench fee is provided.
