Let Me Show You How You Can Win A Full Master's Scholarship In SWEDEN That Is Worth $50,000 Even If You Didn't Graduate With First Class.

No IELTS Required. No Interviews.

The interesting thing is you can apply for it by yourself, without paying any agent unreasonable fees to process it for you.

Stockholm, Sweden

Dear University Graduate,

If you've been dreaming of applying for a full Master's scholarship in Europe in the past and the major hindrances have been money for IELTS, or difficulty of the application, or that you didn't graduate with a First Class, then I have good news for you.

Just give me 5 minutes of your time and I'll show you how you can win this scholarship based on my personal experience.

This was my view, some years ago, few minutes before I landed at the Arlanda Airport in Stockholm, Sweden.

Looking at those nice rows of buildings and vehicles from the plane for the first time brought back feelings of euphoria and excitement that I felt when I was notified of winning the scholarship.

I will never forget the day I received news that I had won a full scholarship for Master's studies in the Scandinavian country of Sweden.

It was a warm Friday morning in Abuja, Nigeria.

April 7th, 2017.

I was at work, periodically checking my email inbox in expectation of the unlikely news of winning the scholarship.

The Swedish Institute had earlier said that they would only be contacting successful candidates.

So, me checking my email inbox expectantly could be termed an act of faith.

But, applying for a scholarship where you're competing with students from all over the world, including from Asia, South America and other African countries, required much more than faith from me.

There was an intense one year period of preparation I put into it.

December, 2015. This was when I made a decision to start applying for Master's studies abroad.

I was tired.

And this might be you too. Tired and frustrated.

I knew there was more I could do with my life but being Nigerian in Nigeria meant there's just a limit to what you can achieve.

Think of this.

If Mark Zuckerberg had been born in Nigeria, he most likely would never have created Facebook.

He might have been killed by the police for being a software developer and carrying a laptop around.

I wanted out.

Just like you want out.

So, I started searching the internet for scholarship opportunities just like you're currently doing.

I saw lots of them, but a lot of them had these stringent requirements and all.

Most of them required a First Class Degree. I graduated with Second Class Upper.

Some of them were for countries where English tests, IELTS/TOEFL were required. And those tests cost a lot of money.

But, I had no money to be writing any English test.

Then, I stumbled on the Swedish Institute Scholarship.

You see all those limitations I mentioned above about other scholarships?

The Swedish Institute Scholarship never required any of them!

No First Class required!

No IELTS/TOEFL or any other English test required!

So, what were the requirements?

Before I tell you about what their requirements were, what really sold me about the Swedish Institute Scholarship were the benefits that each winner was guaranteed to enjoy:

  1. 1
    If you win the scholarship, your full tuition fees will be paid for by the Swedish government.
  2. 2
    Monthly allowance of SEK 9000 when I got the scholarship, which has now been increased to 10,000 SEK (that’s about US$1,049)
  3. 3
    15,000 SEK (about US$1,573) for your transportation expenses from your home country to Sweden.
  4. 4
    6-Months residence permit to look for job after studies, which has now been increased to 12 months residence permit. Once you get a job, you can convert this to a work permit.
  5. 5
    Visa-free travel to 27 European countries with your Swedish study permit.

When you sit down to calculate the value of all these benefits of the scholarship for a 2-year Master’s programme, it all sums up to about a whopping $50,000!!!

That's about NGN 20 million or GHS 290,000!!!

And you know the interesting part?

There is no limit on age or how long ago you finished your degree.

The application process is even cheaper when compared to other countries.

The scholarship application is free, but because you need to apply for admission first before applying for the scholarship, you need to pay an application fee of 900 Swedish krones (about N50,000 or GHS600) to University Admissions in Sweden.

This admission application fee covers 4 FOUR choices of Master's programmes.

Meaning you only pay 900 Swedish krones to apply for 4 FOUR Master's programmes.

You know how MASSIVE this is?

If you want to apply for Master's in other countries, like Canada, the US, UK, you'd have to pay an application fee of about $100 for each course you're interested in.

Meaning if you want to apply for 4 courses, you have to pay about $400!

This is not the case with Sweden.

I mean, when compared to the other scholarships, it was a no brainer for me.

After I reviewed the requirements and saw how easy the requirements were, I went all in for the Swedish Institute Scholarship.

I paid my admission application fee the very first day application started, October 16, 2016, even though the deadline for payment was still far away in January 2017.

When I'm committed to something, I go all in!

The requirements for the scholarship included:

  1. 1
    Work experience of at least 3000 hours. Which is equivalent to 1 and a half years of working for 8 hours per day. Your 6-months internship and 1-year national service (NYSC) should be able to cover for this.
  2. 2
    Leadership experience which has no minimum hour requirement.
    If you’ve had any leadership experience from university, that qualifies too. I used my leadership experience from my university fellowship to apply for this scholarship.
  3. 3
    Motivation letter. The Swedish Institute provides a template for this, so you don't even have to worry about how to write it.
  4. 4
    Reference letter. They also provide a template for this, making it easy for your referees to fill out.
  5. 5
    CV. You guessed right. There's a template for this too. Easy peasy.
  6. 6
    Proof of Work/Leadership Experience forms, whose templates are also provided for your referees to use. They don’t even need any leadership certificate from you.

But the catch is....

The scholarship is quite competitive.

I mean, a scholarship like this, full coverage throughout studies, with relatively easy requirements, is expected to receive lots of applications from all over the world.

About 5000 people apply for this scholarship every year, but only between 300 - 400 people win it every year.

But, this doesn't mean you can't win the scholarship.

When I was applying for the scholarship, that was the first time ever in my life of applying for graduate studies above.

I never had any experience of applying for studying abroad before that time.

I didn't have a First Class degree.

But, there were things I did before I applied that helped me submit a strong application.

This was why in 2017, I decided to develop a programme to teach applicants what to do to submit strong applications for the scholarship even with the limitations of low grades or inexperience.

When the results were announced in April 2018, 5 participants of this programme won the same scholarship in Sweden!

One of them was Denis, from Rwanda.

Denis, from Rwanda

(Admitted for Master's Programme in Horticultural Science at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences)

"Mobolaji's mentorship helped me with guidelines on how to write a convincing motivation letter, with tips like mentioning your leadership experience, connecting your job to SDGs."

I improved this coaching programme once again for the 2019 Class and on April 24, 2020, 10 members of this Class won the scholarship!

Which include: Olumide, from Nigeria, Winnie, from Uganda, and Moses, from Ghana.

Olumide, from Nigeria

He won the scholarship for the Business Administration Master's Programme at Kristianstad University, Kristianstad, Sweden.

Winnie, from Uganda

(Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden)

"Mobolaji played a very a big role in the success of my application given the fact that I had tried twice and not succeeded. He made the process a lot easier, however it is only easy when you follow instructions, do the assignments he gives and by being proactive."

Moses, from Ghana

(Swedish Agricultural University, Uppsala, Sweden)

"The year 2020 was my second time of applying for the SI scholarship and lo and behold, I was selected. I was among the 329 applicants (with 17 being Ghanaians) selected out of the over 6,640 applicants. Look, here I am with my belief that I can fly.

Mobolaji Folorunso's coaching really helped me; it was an eye opener. As I said earlier on, I constructed and framed very good sentences on my documents but none of those won me the SI scholarship in 2019."

We've improved the programme again, and we're now enrolling participants for the 2021 Class.


2021 Scholarship Prep Class for Sweden

This is an intensive preparatory class of group coaching calls, online support group, instructional materials designed to equip you with all the skills and resources you need to present a strong application for the $50,000-Valued Swedish Institute Scholarship.

The next Autumn admission application starts in October, and the scholarship application usually follows after in February.

So, why are we starting this class now when the application is still in October?

Because you might lose the scholarship if you start preparing late!

Taiwo, was a member of our 2020 class. See what he said about starting early:

"What I've learnt from all these is, when applying for ANY Scholarship, one has to prepare one full year in advance because anything can go wrong."

That's what someone who applied in the last application said you should do.

Someone else I follow on social media, who has the experience of applying and winning a scholarship abroad also said:

You see how serious applicants prepare for scholarship applications?

Don't be left out!

Over 9000 people applied for the Swedish Institute scholarship in the last application.

The next application will definitely attract more applicants.

At least you need to know how much you stand to gain by winning this scholarship before deciding on whether you want to join this
2021 Scholarship Prep Class that is designed to help you get the scholarship.


When You Win The Scholarship, You Get:

  • A travel grant of SEK 15,000 for transportation to Sweden. (I got this within one month of my arrival in Sweden in 2017)…
  • Monthly allowance of SEK 10,000 per month for 22 months (2-year Master’s programme) or 10 months (1-year Master’s programme). So, in a 2-year Master’s programme, you would have received SEK 220,000 in total monthly allowances by the end of your programme in June, 2023.
  • Your full tuition fees will be paid to your university. For most Master’s programme, the tuition fee is an average of SEK 252,000 for the 2 years.

Now, add SEK 15,000 + SEK 220,000 + SEK 252,000…What do you get?

SEK 487,000

...which is about $50,000 in US Dollars.

Pause for a minute and think about that figure.

$50,000 US Dollars in total value is what you are destined to benefit if you win this scholarship.

$50,000 is ₦20 million.

$50,000 is Gh₵

And I'm here to tell you that you can win it.

I won it, even without a first class.

I've coached 23 other candidates like you to win the same scholarship, most of whom didn't finish with first class, most with Second Class grades.

$50,000 in total value can be yours too if you are ready.

And if you're reading this article, you're definitely more than ready.

Now, if you stand the chance of winning a scholarship worth $50,000, would a COACHING CLASS that guides you on how to win it, be worth a $415 price tag?

If you're going to be paying ₦158,000 to be coached to win a scholarship that can add ₦20 million of value to your life, not to talk of the many opporunities that will open up because of you studying in Europe,

Do you think it's worth it?

Of course , you are right, it will.

Chike, from Nigeria

(Admitted for Master's Programme in International Administration and Global Governance at University of Gothenburg)

"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."

Susan, from Kenya

(Admitted for Master's Programme in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability at Blekinge Institute of Technology)

"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."

Who Is This Class For?

  • University graduates who graduated with at least Second Class Lower and have at least 1 and half years of work experience and will be applying in the next round.
  • University Students With No Work Experience Yet.
    Access to our Support group will show you what volunteering activities you should be getting involved in right now.

Is the Scholarship Guaranteed?

See ehn, if I had the unilateral power to grant this scholarship to anyone I please, you think I wouldn't have given every African applicant this scholarship?

But, that's not how it works.

No one is guaranteed this scholarship.

I had no guarantee of winning the scholarship before I applied.

I just believed in putting in my best to submit a strong application for the scholarship.

And that's what this Scholarship Prep Class is designed to do.

To show you what things you need to do to put in a strong application for the scholarship.

And you know the interesting thing?

I've received messages in the past from some participants of our lessons who have gone on to win scholarships in other countries, not just Sweden.

For example, this is a Facebook message I received in May 2020, from someone who won the DAAD Scholarship for Master's in Germany.

An email from Jude who won the Erasmus Mundus full Master's scholarship in March 2021 that will be taking him to Poland and Sweden.

Another email from Afeez in March 2021 who will be travelling to Germany on the DAAD Scholarship.

The tips and lessons we've shared in the past helped these candidates also present strong applications for scholarships for Master's studies in Germany and Poland.

Do you see yourself sending me these kinds of messages in the coming months?
