All Swedish Institute scholarship holders are invited to become members of the SI Network for Future Global Leaders (NFGL), a network that offers unique opportunities during the stay in Sweden. Together with other talented people from all around the world, the scholarship holder is able to take part in a variety of events, exchange ideas and create networks that could benefit both career and personal development.
After the scholarship period, all scholarship holders are also invited to the SI Alumni Network, a global network that helps deepen the relationship with Sweden, as well as other alumni, even after the programme.

Applications are evaluated by the Swedish Institute (SI) and an independent academic board. The primary evaluation of the application takes into account the applicant’s academic background, personal motivation and expertise in the project field of the host department.

In the final selection of candidates SI will consider the distribution of scholarships with regards to academic fields, universities, purpose of study, and gender.
