Sida’s travel grant is intended for students or recent graduates who have been accepted on an unpaid internship at an international organisation. The grant gives you the opportunity to finance some of the costs associated with your time abroad.

Sida's travel grant closed for applications 2016

Unfortunately it is not possible to apply for Sida's travel grant in 2016. This is due to a reduction of Sida's budget.
