The government has established two scholarship schemes due to the introduction of fees for students from outside of the EU/EEA/Switzerland.

The first scheme is aimed at students in the twelve countries with which Sweden has long-term development partnerships. These countries are: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

Tuition fee waiver
The second scholarship scheme is aimed at particularly qualified students coming from countries outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland. Central funding is distributed to universities and university colleges, which will in turn award funding to individual students. These scholarships cover only tuition fees, which means that students will need to cover their own living costs.
