Important to think about

  • All applications must be signed by an academic supervisor at KTH or by President/Vice President of THS. A written letter of reference is not mandatory but meritorious. If you are applying to visit another academic institution than KTH you need an invitation letter attached to the application form.
  • Unfortunately KTH Opportunities Fund is unable to provide funding for student start-ups, profit making enterprises or projects which do not primarily benefit KTH students
  • Your project needs to start after a decision about disbursion has been made. This is usually about 6 weeks after the last application date. We never fund any proejcts in restrospect.
  • Do not forget to sign your application yourself!
  • The highest amount to apply for is 50 000 sek
