SWEA Boston Scholarship

SWEA Boston offers scholarships to female undergraduate and graduate students or doctoral candidates who want to pursue studies, work/study, or research in Sweden for at least one semester or a full academic year. In special circumstances, applicants who are planning studies or projects during the summer are also considered. Students/candidates must be from a New England college/university.


For the academic year of 2024/2025, the total scholarship amount is $12,000. Please note that all applications for the academic year 2024/2025 (fall and spring semesters) are due in April.

Application Deadline: April 15, 2024


It is expected that those students who receive a stipend share their experience in Sweden with SWEA in the following ways: write a blog post for our SWEA blog, attend one of our events and meet some of our members and write a travel report when your return.

SWEA members from the past 5 years and their close family members are excluded from participation.
