The KTH India Scholarship Foundation was established in 2012 through a donation made by an anonymous donor and awards two scholarships each year. The scholarship covers the tuition fee of a two year master’s programme and includes a monthly living allowance.
Requirements: To be eligible for the scholarship you must be a fee-paying student and have applied for a master's programme at KTH as your first priority. You must also be an Indian citizen who has completed your undergraduate programme in India. Students with conditional eligibility also qualify. The scholarship is not available for applicants to joint master's programmes.
Selection process: The scholarship is awarded primarily on the basis of academic excellence. Only applicants who fulfil the admission requirements of the programme applied for are eligible for a scholarship. After the applicants have been assessed for admission, an assessment of applicants for the scholarship is made based on the following criteria:
• The applicant's grades (GPA or equivalent)
• The ranking of the university that awarded the applicant's bachelor's degree
• The recommendation of the director of the applied master's programme at KTH
• The applicant's motivation, relevant work experience and extra-curricular activities
Applicants from Mumbai Metropolitan Area and Pune will be prioritized according to the foundation’s statutes.
