Both female and male applicants are welcome. Applicants must be American citizens. Applicants must be either resident in the US and attending an accredited Swedish university OR resident in Sweden and attending an accredited US institute of higher education (college, university or graduate school). The course of study must be for at least one year. Scholarship recipients are expected to attend at least one AWC event during the course of the academic year for which the scholarship is granted.

Award Amount

There is no fixed amount, and the award varies from year to year. Generally speaking, it is sufficient to cover a round-trip economy class ticket between the United States and Sweden.
