Minor Field Studies

A grant programme intended for Bachelor’s and Master’s students who want to learn about developing countries and development issues. This is done by collecting data for a degree project over a period of 8 to 20 weeks in a country approved by Sida/UHR.

Your field study should relate to some of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The grant is funded by Sida but is administered by the Swedish Council for Higher Education. The grant of SEK 27,000 can be used for such expenses as travel, accommodations, vaccines and visas. The grant is open to citizens from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and Swedish permanent residency (PUT) holders.

The application for Minor Field Studies

On 23 May, 2022, it was announced that Minor Field Studies will be discontinued. The projects that have been approved within the framework of MFS need to be completed before 10 January 2023.
