A limited number of the KTH Scholarship may be available for students currently in their first year of Master’s programme at KTH but planning to start a second year of studies in autumn 2016; and also for students attending a joint Master’s programme for a limited period as part of their studies.

Students with a conditional eligibility are eligible to apply for a scholarship.

Only applicants who fulfill the eligibility requirements of the programme applied for will be considered for a scholarship.
