January 13th

Back in Sweden! Today we started to look into what different options you have if you want to apply for a scholarship. This wasn’t as easy as we had thought; most of them have some kind of restriction or demand that you don’t achieve through studying abroad as an exchange student!


The first one we looked into was “Folke Bernadotes Minnesfond för internationallt utbyte”. This one doesn’t really apply for exchange students, because it says that there has to be a return visit to Sweden from someone who lives in the country you were staying in. So we could skip that one. The next one we checked out was “Olof Palmes Minnesfond”. Their purpose is to promote young people’s opportunities for international exchanges and studies, to support efforts to combat racism and xenophobia, and in other ways promoting international understanding and common security. So this one apply better for exchange students! We also found out that you can get a scholarship of 3000 – 1000 kr. The third one was called “Internationella programkontoret”; it’s a government agency that are supporting schools, universities, businesses, organizations and individuals to participate in international cooperation. Their purpose is to increase the cooperation and exchanges with the world and it can be anything from international cooperation projects in education and skills to practice and study abroad. They also state the exchange of teachers and students are an important part of business. That means that this one also fits us pretty good!


The fourth one we looked into was “Prins Carl Gurtafs Stiftelse”. This one failed almost directly because it is intended for individuals that by artistic, sporting or cultural reasons have an opportunity to succeed abroad. Then it’s not suited for an exchange students, more for a football player that want to attend some kind of football university somewhere. The fifth one was more successful; “Svenska institutet”. This one is also a government agency and their purpose is to disseminate knowledge about Sweden abroad and to conduct exchanges with other countries in culture, education, research and life in general. The sixth one “Tage Erlanders stiftelse” would have been perfect for us, but there was only one detail wrong; the exchange country had to be a developing country. And as an exchange student, that’s not an available option.

Today we put together all the statistics. We made three graphs; one is about the most popular countries to go to as an exchange student (the United States), the next one is about the amount of girl compared to boys that choose to be exchange students...

The presentation of the handbook is done. We just wanted a small presentation of what we are hoping to achieve with this handbook; that more students want to experience the life of being an exchange student. We think that a lot of students actually a...

Today we made the front page of our handbook. It was very exciting because now it really feels that we are starting to get somewhere with the actual handbook. We are doing the handbook in a program called “Adobe Indesign CS3” which is a v...

Today we continued with what we were doing last time; trying to find scholarships that are supporting exchange students. We haven’t found as many as we hoped for, but here comes the last ones. “Axel och Sofia Alms stiftelse”; they g...

This is officially the last updating for 2011! And therefore we will not write anything significant, just that in a few hours we are going to London to spend New Years Eve there. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!   ...
