Meet Our Previous Winners

In the last 3 years, 10 talented Indian students have been invited to pursue a Master’s degree at KTH on a full tuition fee scholarship through the KTH Master’s Challenge. Together with KTH, they were able to reach the new heights in life:

“Stockholm is such a beautiful place. And the campus life at KTH is amazing for meeting a lot of new people and broadening my views on problem solving. I didn’t know much about Sweden before but when I saw this competition, it was so tempting with the challenge itself and also that KTH is collaborating with all these great companies that have offices in India, like Ericsson for example. So I started to read up on Sweden and KTH. Also, the fact that it was a full scholarship was of course important since studying abroad can be very expensive.”
