"to promote the sciences and strengthen their influence in society"


Every year, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awards many different kinds of Scholarships and grants. The menus to the left show the subject areas in which funding is allocated. The Scholarships are included in the Academy’s web-based application system (see link below).

General applications and foundations

In Astronomy and Space Sciences, Biosciences, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences, Geosciences with Geography, Humanities, Mathematics, Medical Sciences, Physics and Social Sciences, a general application is made. In addition to the funding available by means of general applications, special foundations and research exchanges are allocated in the same fields. Information about these is given in the menus concerned.

International research exchanges

In most subject areas in Natural Sciences, Scholarships and Fellowships for research periods in Japan (research exchange and Postdoctoral Fellowships) or Israel (the Müller Travel Fellowship Fund)  may be applied for. More information is given in the menus concerned.

More information

We have changed to a new application system. Follow the link below to the new system. There you can create a new account. If you have an account in the old system, you still have to create a new one. But please use the same email address as to the old account.

To the application site 

If you have pending applications, you can still log in to the old system and see the progress of your application (until December 31). However, it is not possible to start new applications in the old application system.
