Master Degree Scholarships at Swedish Institute for Global Professionals, Sweden [Fully Funded]

The Swedish Institute (Swedish: Svenska Institutet, SI) is a Government agency in Sweden with the responsibility to spread information about Sweden outside the country. It exists to promote Swedish interests, and to organise exchanges with other countries in different areas of public life, in particular in the spheres of culture, education, and research.
The main office of the Swedish Institute is located in Gamla stan in central Stockholm. There is also a branch abroad; the Swedish Cultural Centre in Paris (French: Centre Culturel Su├ędois). The agency has approximately 90 members of staff and its board is appointed by the Government of Sweden.

The Swedish Institute (SI) is now launching the Swedish Institute Scholarships for Global Professionals (SISGP), a new scholarship programme which replaces Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS). SISGP offers scholarships to a large number of master’s programmes starting in the autumn semester 2019.
