Apply for grants at Masters level in sustainable development
Swedish Masters students enrolled in programs with a focus on environment, alternative energy, urban sustainability and/or clean tech are invited to apply for REACT U.S.
This initiative is part of the Swedish American Green Alliance (SAGA) which is a partnership between the United States and Sweden on alternative energy and environment. REACT U.S. is an opportunity for five Swedish graduate (Masters-level) students to conduct two weeks of research on urban sustainability in five different U.S. cities. U.S. Embassy Stockholm, in collaboration with Sustainable Sweden, will fund the students’ air fare, accommodation and also provide per diem. The research in the United States should serve as a foundation for the students’ Masters theses (D-uppsats).

We offer, under the auspices of SAGA, five grants for Swedish graduate students in above-mentioned fields of study to conduct field research on the urban sustainability practices of five selected U.S. cities - Boulder (Colorado), Madison (Wisconsin), Minneapolis (Minnesota), Portland (Oregon), and Portsmouth (New Hampshire).
The case study period is 2 weeks in April 2012. Coordinators are Sustainable Sweden Association, U.S. Embassy Stockholm.
