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.
from Mobolaji Folorunso,
March 8, 2020
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:
- 1If you win the scholarship, your full tuition fees will be paid for by the Swedish government.
- 2Monthly allowance of SEK 9000 when I got the scholarship, which has now been increased to 10,000 SEK (that’s about US$1,049)
- 315,000 SEK (about US$1,573) for your transportation expenses from your home country to Sweden.
- 46-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.
- 5Visa-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:
- 1Work 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.
- 2Leadership 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.
- 3Motivation letter. The Swedish Institute provides a template for this, so you don't even have to worry about how to write it.
- 4Reference letter. They also provide a template for this, making it easy for your referees to fill out.
- 5CV. You guessed right. There's a template for this too. Easy peasy.
- 6Proof 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 abroad.
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.
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:

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:
Now, add SEK 15,000 + SEK 220,000 + SEK 252,000…What do you get?
...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₵290,000.
And I'm here to tell you that you can win it.

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?

Hear from some other participants in this programme that have that also won the Swedish scholarship in previous years:
Who Is This Class For?
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.
Since this scholarship is not guaranteed, what are even my chances of winning it with my profile? How am I sure it will work for me?
See, as long as you have at least a Second Class Lower Bachelor's degree and work experience of at least 1 and a half years in a field related to your field of studies, you have a good chance of winning the scholarship.
All I had when applying for the scholarship was a Second Class Upper Bachelor's degree, 2 years work experience in a field that is not even directly related to my field of studies.
I studied Mechanical Engineering, but my work experience was in telecommunications.
All it boils down to is how to effectively and truthfully sell your profile to the scholarship award board.
This is what I teach in this program.
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?
Is it compulsory to join this class before you can win the scholarship?
I want you to know that it's NOT compulsory to join this coaching class before you can win the scholarship.
Hundreds of people win this scholarship every year without even knowing who I am or what we do at Scholars.Africa.
As many people as have been able to use our lessons to win the scholarship, I want you to know that many more who do not know me have won the scholarship.
So, you can still win the scholarship without joining this class.
But, seeing that this might be your first time of applying for studies abroad or maybe your second, third time, do you think it'll be worth it to be coached by someone who has helped many others win full Master's scholarships abroad?
When is the deadline to join the class?
I know there are lots of factors you have to consider before joining this coaching class.
I understand this.
And that's why I'm giving you an opportunity to take your time to do your own research and make up your mind about this.
I wouldn't want people who are not committed to this process to join this coaching class.
Go through my emails, my social media posts, blog posts on the Scholars.Africa website.
They're loaded with information to help you decide.
Digest the information in them.
Google "Master's in Sweden", "Swedish Institute Scholarship for Global Professionals".
Check the scholarship website and see for yourself.
Then, when you're convinced, come back to this page and join the class.
If you're still not convinced this scholarship has your name written on it, fine, it's no problem.
However, note that we review the fee for this coaching class upwards regularly to limit the number of people that join the class per time.
This might be tomorrow, next week or even next month.
When exactly we increase the price is not fixed.
But, it's certain that the fee will be increased anytime soon.
We do this in order to provide a quality experience for every member.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the whole application process cost?
The Master's admission application fee is 900 SEK (about $110), and it covers four choices of Master's programmes.
That's all you need to pay to apply for Master's in Sweden.
The scholarship application is free.
The university admission process and scholarship process are two different processes handled by two different organizations.
You have to apply for admission first before applying for the scholarship.
The only other cost is the cost of sending your transcript to Sweden which your university back home might charge you for.
Candidates who studied in Nigeria are required to have their universities send their transcript directly to Sweden.
Candidates who studied in Ghana, Benin, Kenya, etc can submit their transcript themselves.
How will I download the videos and join the support group after payment?
Immediately after your payment using any of the payment options, you'll receive an email with your login details to our online platform that contains the video lessons and our support group.
When is the next application starting?
There are two admission rounds in Sweden: Spring and Autumn.
But the Swedish Institute Scholarship is only awarded for the Autumn round.
The Autumn admission application starts in October every year and ends in January. Scholarship application usually starts and ends in February.
Admission results are usually announced in March/April. Scholarship results are usually announced after admission results in April.
You have to apply for admission first before applying for the scholarship.
I'm still in the university. I don't have any work experience. Can I still join the class?
Truly, one of the requirements for applying for the scholarship is at least 3000 hours of work experience. That's equivalent to at least 1 and a half years of working for 8 hours per day.
But, do you want to wait till you have the experience before you start preparing for the scholarship?
In fact, membership of the Scholars.Africa Community will expose you to the kind of work experiences you should be seeking. And no, it's not compulsory for it to be paid employment.
I've tried other scholarships. How am I sure this is not a scam? If I join this Class, am I guaranteed the scholarship?
One thing you should note is that full scholarships are generally competitive, and the percentage of candidates who eventually win these scholarships is usually small. So, if you don't win a scholarship, it's not necessarily a scam, it's just that your application wasn't competitive enough.
This is what joining this class addresses. We don't guarantee you a scholarship if you get the StudyPack.
Anyone that guarantees you a scholarship most likely wants to scam you, and that's because, no one except the scholarship selection committee has the power to select winners of the scholarship.
What we can guarantee you is that, if you follow and use the content of this offer, you'll be presenting a strong application for this scholarship.
How will COVID-19 affect the application process?
At the moment, there's been no changes to the application schedule for admissions and the scholarship. However, I'll advise that you keep yourself updated by regularly visiting the University Admissions website.
I have an OND/HND. Can I apply for the scholarship?
A Bachelor's degree is actually required to apply for Master's in Sweden.
I finished with second class lower/third class. Can I win the scholarship?
One of my students from Kenya in the last application, finished with 2.2 and still got the scholarship. The scholarship doesn't even ask for your grades. They only care about your work and leadership experiences.
Grades are only needed by universities during Master's admission process. And it's very easy to get admitted into Swedish universities if you choose the right courses.
With third class, you can win the scholarship if you select the least competitive Master's programmes.
You said that I don't need IELTS or TOEFL, but I checked the admissions website and discovered that it's needed. What can I do?
Every international Master's programme in Sweden has English proficiency requirements. But if you studied in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, and some other English speaking African countries, you are exempted from any English proficiency test requirements.
How will I receive the ebooks and video tutorials?
Immediately after your payment, you'll receive login details to our learning platform where you can download the ebooks, worksheets, and videos in the StudyPack. You'll also have access to our online Community on the platform.
I have a spouse and children. Will the scholarship cover my family? Can I come to Sweden with my family?
You can come along with your family to Sweden, but the scholarship only pays for one person. You have to show proof of funds for the upkeep of the other family members before they can be granted their visas.
How certain is it for me to get a job in Sweden after studies?
The Swedish government has a policy that allows international students who just finished their studies in Sweden to remain in Sweden for 12 months after studies to look for a job or start a business.
And I'm quite sure that's more than enough time to get a job after studies in Sweden.
P.S. Want to know what it's like to study in Sweden?
