ASEM DUO-Sweden Fellowship Program was established in 2010 with the aim of promoting exchanges of people between Sweden and 21 Asian countries on a balanced basis. In this respect, DUO-Sweden requires that a PAIR (two persons) of students be exchanged in an academic cooperative arrangement.
DUO-Sweden 2019/2020 is for exchange projects, which will start from August 2019 and end before September 2020 to avoid duplication of the implementation period of exchange projects selected by DUO-Sweden in the ensuing years. The selection of DUO-Sweden 2019/2020 is made only once a year. In this respect, those who are planning to exchange in Spring Semester of 2020 (January-August 2020) shall apply for DUO-Sweden 2019/2020.
The amount of fellowships is standardized as follows:
- 3,500 Euros for Asian student and 3,500 Euros for Swedish students in a pair, in a high-income country.
- For Middle and Low-income countries, the Asian student gets 4,000 Euros and the Swedish student gets 3,000 Euros.
