SWEA International, Swedish Women’s Educational Association, is a non-profit global organization dedicated to the promotion of Swedish culture and the encouragement of friendship and personal growth among its members.
SWEA Boston offers an annual scholarship that is awarded to one or more well-merited female undergraduate or graduate students at a New England university who wish to pursue studies or a work/study program in Sweden for at least one semester.
Also, special research projects in Sweden by New England women are encouraged and will be considered.
In 2017 the sum awarded was a record high $10,500.
The SWEA Boston scholarship is only made possible through the organization’s annual fundraiser, “Swedish Yuletide- The SWEA Fair and Holiday Celebration.” It’s a annual December event that is held at the Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts.
This year´s scholarship luncheon and award ceremony was held Sunday May 7 2017 at the Scandinavian Living Center in Newton, MA.
Information about applications and required documents will be posted here in the early 2018.
