Scholarship for PhD and post-doctoral studies in Sweden


The program is open to candidates from three different categories of countries that determine certain aspects of the program.
1. Category oneCandidates coming from all countries on the Development Assistance Committee list of recipients of Official Development Assistance, the so-called ODA recipients.
From the above DAC list some priority will be given to candidates coming from countries that Sweden have long-term development cooperation with. This means that a minimum of 50 % of the candidates will be chosen from the following countries: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
The program is not open to candidates from Ukraine, Belarus and Turkey, in spite of them being on the DAC list of ODA recipients. These citizens should instead apply for scholarship through the Visby Program, or in the case of Turkey, the Swedish-Turkish Scholarship Program.
In category one we have the opportunity to offer approximately 50 scholarships. The final number of scholarships depend on how many candidates in the final selection that have applied for PhD studies or Postdoctoral research, and on how long these candidates plan to stay in Sweden — 6 or 12 months, or sandwich (several shorter research visits).
2. Category twoCandidates coming from the following countries: France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan and the United States.
In category two we have the opportunity to offer approximately 5-10 scholarships. The final number of scholarships depend on how many candidates in the final selection that have applied for PhD studies or Postdoctoral research, and on how long these candidates plan to stay in Sweden — 6 or 12 months, or sandwich (several shorter research visits).
3. Category threeCandidates coming from the following countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, Serbia.
