The Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS) is open for applications, aimed at diversity and gender equality among scholarship holders.
SISS is the Swedish government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders. It is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and administered by the Swedish Institute (SI).
The goal is to enable the scholarship holders to play an active role in the positive development of the societies in which they live.
- The scholarship covers both tuition fees (paid directly to the Swedish university/university college by the Swedish Institute) and living expenses to the amount of SEK 9,000 per month.
- Scholarship holders from South Africa receive a travel grant in connection with their scholarship. The travel grant is a one-time payment of SEK 15,000.
- Scholarship holders are insured by the Swedish State Group Insurance and Personal Insurance against illness and accident during the scholarship period.
- All SI scholarship holders become members of the SI Network for Future Global Leaders (NFGL) – a network which offers exclusive opportunities for SI scholarship holders during their stay in Sweden.
- Applicants must be South African citizens but may, at the time of their application and admission, reside in a country other than South Africa, including Sweden.
- Applicants who hold dual citizenships and both countries are eligible for SI scholarships should choose only one of the citizenships when applying for SI scholarships. Therefore applicants can only apply to one SI scholarship programme or one category/initiative within SI Study Scholarships. Applicants who apply for SI scholarships with more than one citizenship will be disqualified.
- Priority will be given to applicants who have completed bachelor’s studies from a South African university.
