Grants for Integration and Internationalisation
Several initiatives by actors on different levels have already been taken to facilitate the establishment and integration of newly arrived refugees. Within the higher education institutions, activities such as language education, supplementary training and internships, have been and are carried out. However, as the needs are large and acute, further measures are necessary.
STINT’s programme is taking its basis in the fact that academics with a refugee background can contribute to the internationalisation at Swedish higher education institutions as well as to the development of higher education and research in Sweden. This in combination with the creativity and involvement of Swedish higher education institutions in issues relating to newly arrived, form the starting point for the call.
Applications should be submitted by the vice-chancellor of a Swedish university no later than March 28th 2017
. Completed applications should be submitted using STINT’s application system
