Other Grant Opportunities
The Fulbright Commission strongly suggests that Fulbright Grantees seek funding outside of the Fulbright Grant for their studies. The cost for tuition and books at U.S. institutions is quite high ranging from $5000 for some public institutions to as high as $30,000 for some private institutions. International students’ tuition expenses at state schools are based on nonresident costs, which are still usually less expensive than those of private universities. It’s important to note that the cost of a program in a U.S. school does not necessarily affect its quality. Furthermore, the cost of living can be quite high in certain metropolitan areas; therefore, it’s important to factor in these living costs as well. The cost of living depends on location. For example, states like Washington, California and the area around New York are costly to live in.

NEW: Fulbright Alumnus, Andreas Nilsson (2008) created a Swedish grant/scholarship website database (stipendiesökningstjänst) to easily find grants offered in all fields of study.  To begin your search, please see: www.stipendielistan.se

For a list of Swedish Foundations that have provided funding in the past, please see the PDF here. Please also see the American-Scandinavian Foundation for funding for both Swedes and Americans.

The Institute of International Education has released a website for funding study in the US, which is an extensive database of scholarships, fellowships and grants for all levels of post-secondary study.
