Colleges and universities all around the globe have scholarship programs and grants that you will receive each month, semester or year during your studying. But high schools in Sweden also have such grants – and they get them just so they can actually attend their classes.
According to the Swedish law, the country is obliged to pay you 1,050 SEK ($152) each month by default. The only catch is that you have to be 16 years old and attend all your upper secondary school classes, adult secondary education program classes or your folk high school classes. The local students don’t even need to apply for this grant, only the foreign high school students do. If the student is studying in a boarding school or his/her family is in need of a larger grant, the student will receive a supplementary allowance or a boarding grant. The supplementary ones vary between 285 SEK ($41.30) and 855 SEK ($123.90) and the boarding ones are usually around $1,190 SEK to 2,350 SEK ($172 to $340).
The students receive grants from the age of 16 to their 20th birthday.
