The KTH–India Scholarship Foundation was established in 2012 through a donation made by an anonymous donor and awards two scholarships biannually. Recipients of the KTH-India Scholarship will have their tuition fee waived for the total length of the programme. The scholarship also includes a monthly allowance during the academic year (10 months) and is initially granted for one academic year and can be extended provided that the study results are satisfactory.
To be eligible you must be a tuition-fee paying student and have applied for a master's programme at KTH as your first priority. You must also be a Indian citizen that has completed your undergraduate programme in India. Students with a conditional eligibility are eligible to apply for a tuition fee waiver. The scholarship is not available for applicants to joint master's programmes.
