Grants for Double Degree Programmes


Please note the deadline for application has passed.
The next call will be published during december 2017.
Below you’ll find information from the last call. 

The aim of the programme is to internationalize and renew higher education at Swedish higher education institutions primarily on Bachelor and Master's level, but also on PhD level. Grants for Double Degree Programmes targets the development of new educational collaborations between Swedish and foreign higher education institutions.

Applicants must be dean or equivalent with a responsibility for decisions regarding new education programmes at a university in Sweden. Projects may last for up to three years. Funds applied for may not exceed SEK 750,000. The application should clearly state how the project will be co-funded by the university (and any other partners) in a sum at least as great as that being applied for. The main partner should be outside EU/EFTA.

Applications will be assessed by experts, focusing on how the proposed international partnership fulfils the following four criteria: A) contribution to higher education on all levels (qualitatively and quantitatively), B) sustainability and growth potential, C) level of renewal in regard to internationalisation, and D) the quality of the proposal’s planning and project setup.

Applications should be made in English and submitted through STINT’s application system. The call closes 3 pm. February 10th, 2017.
