Singapore - Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR)

A*STAR and Karolinska Institutet have been collaborative partners during more than a decade. Within research the collaboration in genetic epidemiology has been especially active. During 2006 and 2016 KI and A*STAR have collaborated in the joint training of PhD students through the A*STAR-KI Partnership PhD Programme. Eight PhD-students have graduated from the programme. 

The A*STAR-Karolinska Institutet partnership  PhD Programme (AKIP) is no longer accepting new applications as the programme has been phased out.

Singaporeans/ Other nationals intending to take up Singapore citizenship interested in pursuing a PhD at Karolinska Institutet can apply for the National Science Scholarship (PhD) that funds your PhD studies for up to five years.
