The Swedish Institute (SI) is now launching the Swedish Institute Scholarships for Global Professionals (SISGP), a new scholarship programme which replaces Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS). Moreover, SISGP offers scholarships to a large number of master’s programmes starting in the autumn semester 2019. In addition, an estimated 300 scholarships will be available for full-time master’s studies in Sweden starting in the autumn semester 2019. Usually 1-3 % of the applicants are awarded a SISGP scholarship.

Furthermore, the scholarship is intended for full-time one-year or two-year master’s programmes, and is only awarded for programmes starting in the autumn semester. Also, the scholarship is granted for one academic year (two semesters) at a time. Additionally, it will be extended for programmes longer than two semesters, provided that the student has passed his/her courses/credits.
