Joint Thailand-Sweden PhD Scholarships

In 2015, ISP and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) partnered with the Thailand International Cooperation Agency (TICA) and the Thailand Research Fund (TRF).

This partnership offers scholarships to PhD students in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Students are registered at Thai Universities, where they spend two years of their PhD training, with one intermittent year in Sweden.

In 2019, the responsibilities of TRF were transferred to the Thailand Science Research and Innovation (TSRI) at the National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) under the Thai Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Innovation.

So far, four PhD students have graduated. All of them from Myanmar.
