Field studies in a developing country

As a student at the University of Gothenburg, you can apply for minor field studies (MFS), a SIDA-funded scholarship for students who want to collect material for their degree project in a developing country. You get the opportunity do field studies for at least eight weeks related to the development process in the country. As a language student, you could, for example, study the oral narrative tradition, language learning, access to literature/libraries, the status of minority languages, or language teaching.

You can get good ideas and inspiration from reading previous scholarship holders’ reports, which you can find at:
