Do you have ambition, leadership experience, and a strong professional background?

You could study for a master’s degree in Sweden on a fully-funded Swedish Institute scholarship.

The Swedish Institute Scholarships for Global Professionals (SISGP) programme is part of the Swedish government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders who will contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and administered by the Swedish Institute (SI).

The stipend for living expenses is paid monthly during the scholarship period.
