DUO-Sweden Fellowship Program was established in 2010 with the aim of promoting exchanges of people between Sweden and 21 Asian countries. DUO-Sweden requires that a pair of students be exchanged in an academic cooperative arrangement. The program is intended for exchange projects, which will start from December 2020 and end before January 1, 2022.
The duration of exchange should be at least one semester and the scholarship is only available for those studying full-time. A Swedish Selection Committee, organized by the Swedish Council for Higher Education, will make the selection after the application deadline. The decision will be announced in November 2020. The amount of fellowships is standardized as follows: 3,500 Euros for Asian student and 3,500 Euros for Swedish students in a pair, in a high-income country. For Middle and Low-income countries, the Asian student gets 4,000 Euros and the Swedish student gets 3,000 Euros.
The deadline is on October 6, 2020.
An educational institution in Sweden (home institution) and an educational institution in Asia (host institution) should have established an academic cooperative arrangement/inter-institutional agreement and selected respective students for the exchange. Applicants should fill out an online application form, provide a copy of cooperation agreement, and a transcript. The application should be written in English.
Participating countries: Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
