SWEA OC Scholarship

SWEA OC stipendium delas normalt årligen ut till studenter vid University of California Irvine, som har utsetts att studera i Sverige genom det s.k. ”UCEAP (University of California Education Abroad) Reciprocity Program”. Informationen är därför på engelska.

Due to the pandemic, the scholarship is not available for the academic year of 2021-22. SWEA OC anticipates that application materials for the 2022-23 school year will be available sometime in the fall of 2021.
