Grants for virtual exchange between Sweden and South Africa

SASUF (South Africa – Sweden University Forum) aims to build capacity for collaboration between Sweden and South Africa by funding virtual exchange grants.

The virtual exchange grants are focused on the creation of activities that enable meaningful, virtual intercultural interaction between students, teachers, researchers and other actors in Sweden and South Africa. Examples of what type of activities that can be funded:

  • Update an already existing course, project, summer school, living lab etc. with virtual elements. This could for instance be by incorporating an exchange of virtual guest lecturers or by virtual projects/assignments for students etc.
  • Plan and implement new joint courses, projects, summer schools, living labs etc. with teachers and students from both countries.

Closing date: November 29, 2022.
