University of Gothenburg students

Minor Field Studies

Minor Field Studies (MFS) is a Sida-funded program with the aim of giving Swedish students the opportunity to gain knowledge about Sida's partner countries and development issues.

This is made possible by a travel scholarship of SEK 27,000 per student for a field study of at least 8 weeks (56 days on site). The scholarship is an additional scholarship for other CSN funds. The field study should serve as material collection for degree work for a bachelor's, master's or master's degree.

One criteria is that you are a Swedish citizen or have a permanent residence permit (PUT) in Sweden. EU citizens' permanent residence permit (PUR) is not equated with a permanent residence permit (PUT) and does not justify grant funding. If you come from the rest of the Nordic countries and are not a Swedish citizen, you should have been registered in Sweden for at least one year at the time of the decision to award scholarships.

Note that as of 2018, people with dual citizenship in Sweden and another country are allowed to conduct field studies via MFS in the other country.

More information on the Swedish website

A meeting about applying to MFS will be arrangeed on Friday September 10, 12:00-13:00 CET in Zoom. More information about the meeting and link to the Zoom meeting.

Chalmers students

Chalmers have two scholarships where students can get support for longer field studies abroad during their master’s thesis. The aim is to create an opportunity for students to get unique experiences through their work. The idea is to work with internationally interesting sustainable solutions for global challenges within the framework of a thesis. Both scholarships have the same deadline for application on November 7 and the field study should be performed during spring 2022.

More information about these scholarships, practicalities around travelling etc. will be discussed at an information event at lunch time (12.00-13.00) on the 21st of September 2021.
The event is open for teachers and students. Join the event here.
