Malmö University is a member of SPIDER (The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions) and we have the privilege to offer travel grants to Master level students for doing field work (Degree Project) in developing countries. You can apply for a grant from 15.000 to 25.000 SEK (ca 1.600 to 2.700 €). The project must concern ”New Media and ICT for Development” and/or have an ICT4D component, and the field work must be carried out in what Sida defines as a developing country (which is not your home country). SPIDER prioritizes travel to Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Bolivia, but note that the application is to be made to Malmö University, and the decision of approval/rejection is taken locally. All Malmö University students at Master level – regardless of citizenship or residence – are eligible for the grants.
To apply for a grant, you must submit a Project PM that describes the outlines of your intended field work and a preliminary budget. Applications can be sent by e-mail and ordinary mail to
