There are several scholarships and tuition fee waivers available at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. Some of these scholarships are funded by the Swedish government while others are funded by other organizations or the European Union.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP
KTH offers students from non EU|EFTA|EEA countries scholarships as full tuition waivers. These scholarships are meant for students who are supposed to pay tuition fees and have also applied for a Master’s program at the school.
About 30 scholarships may be available every year for students presently in the first year of a Master’s program but have plans to begin a second year of studies during autumn 2016 as well as students enrolled for a joint Master’s program as part of their studies for a limited period of time.
While the scholarship covers full tuition fee for the period of the program, students will be responsible for their living costs and expenses. Also scholarship students will have their tuition fee waived for the first and second year if their results in the first year are good.
Citizens from all countries except European countries are eligible for the scholarships but it is worth noting that KTH places attention on regions like India, Brazil, China and Southeast Asia.
