Scholarships

When the requirement to pay application and tuition fees was introduced for applicants who are not citizens of EU/EEA countries or Switzerland, two scholarship programmes were established.

One scholarship programme is aimed at well-qualified students from countries where Sweden is involved in long-term development work. This scholarship is administered by the Swedish Institute (see link to the right).

The second scholarship programme is aimed at well-qualified students from countries, other than EU/EEA countries and Switzerland (in accordance with Regulation 2010:543), who wish to study at Swedish universities/colleges. This scholarship is administered by the Swedish Council for Higher Education, but applications for and approval of scholarships are dealt with by the university/college concerned.

Scholarships at the Swedish Defence University

If you have applied for a course at the University, which requires the payment of fees, you may apply to the University for a scholarship. The award of any such scholarship may only be used to pay all or part of the tuition fees and may not be used for accommodation or other suchlike costs.

Applications for scholarships should be in the form of a personal letter, including contact details, and certified copies of certificates/awards from previous studies.

For questions about the scholarship administered by the Swedish Defence University, contact the Student and Education Section at feesandscholarships [at] fhs.se

Application deadlines

Submit your application no later than 15 November if you apply for a scholarship for courses that start in the spring semester. If you wish to apply for a scholarship for courses that start in the autumn semester, you should submit your application no later than 15 May.
