The Joint Brazilian-Swedish Research Collaboration, administered by Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education, STINT, aims at improving Swedish research and higher education by developing international co-operation. The scholarship is given for projects with a focus on either research or higher education, preferably both.
The applicant needs to be an active member of a university or other higher education facility, and have disputed. The project should have a Brazilian part as well. If one is a member of another STINT project (excluding initiation scholarship), one should not apply.
