Funding for internship abroad

For internships within Europe, the Erasmus scholarship may cover additional expenses such as travel to and from the study destination. For internships outside Europe, there are other scholarships available. In many cases, the company that hosts the internship can offer compensation.

Study finance from CSN

Since an internship is generally not credit giving, you usually can not obtain student finance from the Swedish Board of Student Finance, CSN. However, if you can credit the internship in an internship course within your study programme, you can obtain student finance as for regular studies. More information on CSN's website, csn.se .

Compensation from clients

If you do your internship at a company, they might compensate you for your work. It is possible to receive compensation even if granted the Erasmus + scholarship. Remember, however, that you can be required to repay student aid if your annual income becomes too high. For more information visit CSN's website, csn.se .
