All applicants who are required to pay the application fee must do so; there are no exceptions, not even for students who have applied for a scholarship.

Depending on the organisation or agency you've applied to, it is possible that your application fee will be refunded to you if you receive a scholarship. This is something you should ask the place where you've applied for the scholarship.

Currently, the Swedish Institute does not reimburse students for the application fee if they receive a scholarship.

After you have submitted your application, it will be assigned an application number. You receive a unique number for each admission round you apply to.

Log in to your account here at and go to 'Application'. You'll find your application number there. 

Your application number usually changes because you created more than one account and those accounts have been merged. Applicants are only allowed one account at

This may delay the processing of your application. It's important that you note the new application number if you contact University Admissions.

If you've applied for a Swedish Institute Scholarship, you should contact them directly to let them know the application number has changed. This will allow them to connect your admissions application to your scholarship application. Failure to do so could affect your chances of receiving a scholarship from them.

By the time you receive your admissions results, the application deadlines for applying for scholarships have most likely passed.

You can check with the university you've applied to, to see if they have any scholarships still available for application. Otherwise, you will need to research scholarship opportunities on your own - Google may be of help.

You can also find more scholarship information at Study in Sweden.

If you applied for a scholarship from the Swedish Institute for a programme that begins in the autumn semester, you should receive notification from them around the time you receive your admissions results. The Swedish Institute will be unable to give you any information regarding the result of your scholarship application before then and they ask for your patience.

If you applied for a scholarship from a university, it is up to them to determine when you will receive a decision on your application. You should consult the university´s website for further information.

See Scholarships on for more information.
