There are many Swedish, European and international foundations that award scholarships and grants. The rules for different scholarships and grants can vary – some are intended to help meet living costs, others help with tuition fees (for non EU/EEA citizens) and still others can be used toward educational costs as a whole. For details on the various types of scholarships and grants available, be sure to read and carefully follow the information provided.
Remember that other sources exist and that investing some time, effort and creativity in researching and applying for scholarships and grants can have a significant impact on the actual financial cost to you of your education.
