The Swedish Institute Study Master Scholarship For Pakistani Students To Study In Sweden

swedish institue

The Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS) are awarded to students from selected countries for full-time master’s level studies in Sweden starting in the autumn semester 2017.

The scholarships cover both living costs and tuition fees. An estimated 335 scholarships will be available.

The scholarship application period opens with a first application step 1 December 2016 – 24:00 GMT 16 January 2017, followed by a detailed second application step for successful candidates from the first step, on 1 – 10 February 2017.

To apply for a SI scholarship, you must first complete your separate application to the master’s programme(s) before the university deadline 16 January 2017. The application process and the selection criteria for the Swedish Institute Study Scholarships are separate from the application process to master’s programmes at University Admissions. Note that you should also look for scholarship opportunities from your Government or from other sources in your country, as well as for opportunities from Swedish universities, since the competition for SI scholarships is very fierce.

Who we are looking for

SISS is the Swedish government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders. It is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and administered by the Swedish Institute (SI). The programme offers a unique opportunity for future leaders to develop professionally and academically, to experience Swedish society and culture, and to build a long-lasting relationship with Sweden and with each other.

The goal is to enable the scholarship holders to play an active role in the positive development of the societies in which they live. Ideal candidates are ambitious young professionals with academic qualifications, demonstrated leadership experience and a clear idea of how a study programme in Sweden would benefit their country.

Priority will be given to applicants choosing study programmes with an emphasis on gender equality, sustainable development, democracy, human rights or poverty reduction.

Applicants from South Africa should apply within the Swedish Institute Study Scholarships for South Africa.

Selection and eligibility criteria

Applicants must be from an eligible country and have at least 3,000 hours of experience from full-time/part-time employment, voluntary work, paid/unpaid internship, and/or position of trust. Applicants must display academic qualifications and leadership experience. In addition, applicants should show an ambition to make a difference by working with issues which contribute to a just and sustainable development in their country, in a long term perspective.

Read more about the selection criteria, target countries, and eligible master programmes. Please note that the eligibility criteria for countries within special initiatives are different. Read more under the title “Special initiatives” on the page.

Application procedure and key dates

The application process consists of two steps. The first step will take place 1 December 2016 – 24:00 GMT 16 January 2017 through an online application form. Successful candidates will be notified by the end of January 2017 (preliminary date: 25 January 2017), and asked to submit a detailed application for the second step 1 – 10 February 2017. The two-step application process aims at offering transparency in the selection process.

To be considered for a scholarship, you must first complete your separate application to the master’s programme(s) before the university deadline of 16 January 2017. To be considered for a scholarship in the second step, you must pay your university admissions application fee (SEK 900) to University Admissions before 1 February 2017 (deadline for receipt of the fee). There is no application fee for applying for SI scholarships.

For the second step of the scholarship application you will be required to submit a Motivation letter, a Europass CV, a passport copy, one letter of reference and one proof of work experience. The documents must be in English. If any mandatory document is not used or completed in English the application is deemed ineligible.

Read more about the application procedure, including guidelines, important dates, document templates and what happens after submitting the application.

Scholarship benefits

The scholarship covers both tuition fees (paid directly to the Swedish university/university college by the Swedish Institute) and living expenses to the amount of SEK 9,000 per month. There are no additional grants for family members.

Travel grants

Scholarship holders from countries on the DAC list of ODA recipients receive a travel grant in connection with their scholarship. The travel grant is a one-time payment of SEK 15,000.

Insurance

Scholarship holders are insured by the Swedish State Group Insurance and Personal Insurance against illness and accident during the scholarship period.

Network memberships

All SI scholarship holders become members of the SI Network for Future Global Leaders (NFGL) – a network which offers exclusive opportunities for SI scholarship holders during their stay in Sweden. Together with other talented people from all around the world, the scholarship holders take part in and organise a variety of events, exchange ideas and create networks beneficial both to career and personal development. Scholarship holders are expected to be ambassadors for their country, and to demonstrate leadership skills and cooperation within the NFGL. When the scholarship holders return to their home countries they become part of the SI Alumni Network.

Scholarship period

The scholarship is intended for full-time master’s level studies of one or two years, and is only awarded for programmes starting in the autumn semester. The scholarship covers the whole duration of the master’s programme.

The scholarship period cannot be altered or extended beyond the study programme period, nor can the scholarship be transferred to a study programme other than the awarded one.

In India minorities need world attention. My Blog

By: Dr. Muhammad Qasim

According to 2011 census of India, It has 966.3 million Hindus, who make up 79.8 per cent of its population, and 172.2 million Muslims, who make up 14.23 per cent. Among the other minorities, Christians make up 2.3 per cent of the population and Sikhs 1.72 per cent. While rest are includes Buddhism, Jainism and various indigenous ethnically-bound faiths.

According to constitution of India, it is called as secular state but on ground realities things are opposite. Through its indigenous policies it is fully Hindu dominated society where people from other religions are living a miserable life. Muslims though they constitute the major part of minorities are most vulnerable population of India. Sikhs are the second in list who are treated as worst citizens.

Muslim, Christian and Sikh minorities have been victims of extrajudicial executions, torture, rape, intimidation, implication in false cases, destruction of property, utilities and other illegal acts under the Indian criminal justice system.

The Sikhs were subjected to genocidal killings in 1984 with the significant participation of members of the security forces. The Muslims were subjected to genocidal killings in Gujarat in 2002 and the tribal Christians became victims of serious violence in Kandhamal, Odisha, in 2008.

During current government of BJP has given free atmosphere to radical hindu organization like shev sina , RSS etc to torture minorities on their religious festivals . Recently A 50-year-old man, Mohammad Akhlaq, was beaten to death and his 22-year-old son severely injured on Monday nght in UP’s Dadri, allegedly by residents of Bisara a Indian village, after rumours spread in the area about the family storing and consuming beef. Later it was proved that it was not beef meat.  For minorties even practing their main piller of belief are ban as 24 out of 29 states in India currently have various regulations prohibiting either the slaughter or sale of cows.

The strictest laws are in Delhi, Gujarat,Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, where the slaughter of cow and its progeny, including bulls and bullocks of all ages, is completely banned. Most States prohibit the slaughter of cows of all ages

Discrimination with minorities go beyond the religious facts. According to SACHAR reports 2006 education and jobs sectors ratios of Muslims is around to 2 to 3% but their population ratios is above then 15%. Similarly number of government schools and educational institutes are less in Muslims and Skih majority areas as compared to Hindus Majority Areas. There are only two universities are reserved for Muslims while other hands Hindu has open access to all universities of country. In 2013 out of out of the 998 candidates recommended (for selection) for various civil services, only 28 were Muslim — 2.8 per cent of the total.

South Korea has number of Muslims Scholars from India for PhD and Post PhDs but majority of them are hopeless to get any job placement in India. I have many of Muslims friends from India, they are worried and trying hard to get any faculty position in India but they always come with negative response only because of their religion.

Even inside the hindu community lower casts are struggling for their lives. Huge population of dilat is protesting continuously against discrimination by higher levels cast of hindus and demanding a special quota of jobs. Thousands of people belonging to the Dalit community, the former untouchables, have staged a massive protest in India’s Gujarat state in response to atrocities against the community.

The 10-day “Dalit Pride March” culminated in Una town in southern Gujarat on August 15 – India’s Independence Day – as Dalits pledged to seek “freedom from atrocities and caste-based discrimination”

While in Indian occupied Kashmir government is using all types of state violence against innocents’ citizen since last 50 years and it is once again rise in last few six months. Thousands of people lost their eyes by pellet gun tortures and more than 100 civilians died while protesting against Indian state violence.

Same lever of discrimination is recorded in civil and judiciary procedures and imprisonment. According to National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) the number of Muslims prisoners in Indians states, West Bangal, Mahrashtra Gujrat and Rajistan is almost three times to their population ratios in those states. Most of those prisoners are behind the bar on minor issues since years. Due to poverty they even cannot affords to follow their cases in courts to get release form jails.

World humanitarian organization and civilized communities need to put their serious attentions towards huge discrimination with minorities inside India.

Even Indian famous Bollywood actors who are Muslims are always threaten to leave India due to their sympathies toward Muslim communities and their statements about Indian state terrorism polices against minorities in India.

we hope that world community will take notice of mass Human rights violation in India and enforce them to establish rules of equality and justice.
