SWEA travel stipends


In cooperation with the Nordic Center at UC Berkeley, we are excited to offer SWEA travel stipends to up to five UC Berkeley undergraduate students who are planning to pursue studies in Sweden in 2023. These stipends will each be in the amount of $2,000.

It is expected that those students who receive a stipend share their experience in Sweden with SWEA in one of the following ways: write a blog post for our SWEA blog, attend one of our events and meet some of our members, record a short video or podcast about your experience.

SWEA members and their close family members are excluded from participation. The decision by SWEA San Francisco is final.
