Top 11 Scholarships in Sweden for International Students

Up until 2010, Sweden was one of the few countries in Europe where students could study for free. The Swedish government then introduced legislation imposing tuition and application costs on students from non-EU/EEA countries, which will be supported by Swedish scholarship programs. Many Swedish universities still provide tuition waivers to international students.
