Scholarship levels for PhD Students

In line with a decission from the President (rektor) of KTH the levels of scholarships for PhD Students should be at minimum at the same level as decided by the Swedish Institute (SI), which today is 15 000 kr/month that was decided 2013-09-01. Unfortunately, this has not been implemented to a desirable extent and there is work in progress concerning this matter. 2014-01-16 a new decission came replacing the old one saying that PhD students on scholarship accepted onwards will have the level SI has as a reccommendation at that time. More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
