"You've done more than enough for me. I never heard of the scholarship until I visited your Facebook page and you guided me through the application process. You know, yesterday I was going through my mails with you since November 2018, and I was like, Thank God for sending this young man my way."
Chike, from Nigeria University of Gothenburg, Sweden
"I consistently received your emails last year and I learnt a lot from them. Even the decision to apply for the scholarship was influenced by you to a large extent. You answered my questions on email and I believe following the advise that you offered me from the beginning including but not limited to studying the websites carefully was extremely helpful. This was my first time to apply for the scholarship and I got awarded! Your mentorship has been amazing, well-structured and systematic."
Susan, from Kenya Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden
The Swedish government has a policy that allows international students who just finished their studies in Sweden to remain in Sweden for 12 months after studies to look for a job or start a business. And I'm quite sure that's more than enough time to get a job after studies in Sweden.
You can come along with your family to Sweden, but the scholarship only pays for one person. You have to show proof of funds for the upkeep of the other family members before they can be granted their visas.
One of my students from Kenya finished with Second Class Lower and still got the scholarship. The scholarship doesn't even ask for your grades. They only care about your work and leadership experiences.
Grades are only needed by universities during Master's admission process. And it's very easy to get admitted into Swedish universities if you choose the right courses.
With third class, you can win the scholarship if you select the least competitive Master's programmes.
