Overall Experience
I learned so much about Sweden, different cultures in and near Europe, and about living in a new place and making new friends! Would highly recommend! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
June 18, 2024 Worth My Time.
I learned a lot about differnet cultures and specifically Swedish culture. Also to go into situations with an open mind. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned so much independence from navigating a new city and it was completely worthwhile. I also was given the opportunity to compare health care systems while actually being in the different countries. This was also an extremely worthwhile experience. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Research Experience and traveling across Europe. Very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
January 05, 2024 Grand
It was definitely worth it. I meet people I probably wouldn't have become friends within the Middlebury bubble. It was a lovely reset from the sometimes toxic Middlebury environment. I learned to be more open-minded, optimistic, and less judgemental. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

i learned to be bold and put myself outside of my comfort zone. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Overall it was a great experience. I was able to get an understanding of Swedish and Nordic culture and explore other parts of Europe during travelling breaks as well. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was extremely worthwhile. I matured in some aspects, found ways to cope with difficult emotions and situations, and learned a heck of a lot about Sweden and Swedish culture/history. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
June 18, 2024 Semester With Dis
I think my time in Sweden taught me the value of independent living, and the importance of work-life balance (which Sweden is notorious for). By the end of the program, I felt very connected to my peers and to living abroad and had a hard time saying goodbye. One thing I wish was that the program put more emphasis on getting to ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
June 11, 2024 Experiential
I learned how to step outside of my comfort zone and find a good balance between academics and my social life - Brandeis University View Entire Review
May 25, 2024 Stockholm <3
I gained a stronger sense of independence through having to budget, cook my own meals, and just exist in a new country where I couldn't understand the language. I came to really love Stockholm, and I'll definitely be back (but probably in the summer next time) - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Learned a lot about Scandinavian culture as well as Europe in general. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned about how to live in the Swedish culture and what elements I could bring back to the states. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
July 28, 2023 Formative
Similar to last answer, it was so worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
July 06, 2023 Well Worth It!
It was truly a great experience in living on my own so far away from home. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself as a person and how I respond to adversity as well as being separated from my friends and family. I had the opportunity to live with a new family on a new continent and took unique classes with insightful professors from around the world. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
May 30, 2023 Truly Amazing
I learned so much about myself and where I see myself in the world. Studying abroad allowed me to view a new culture and appreciate in some aspects of my own, but also bring back other cultures' practices. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Much of what I gained from my experience abroad was personal and formative, as I feel that I have grown so much as an individual and have a new perspective from which to live my life. This program was absolutely worthwhile, and I am sure that it will have an impact on me for the rest of my life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
January 08, 2023 A Taste Of Being Swedes
I think the cultural aspect was the most valuable. field studies and cultural courses are very helpful. I really enjoyed the lifestyle of sweden - Middlebury College View Entire Review

DIS - Study Abroad Scholarships

This merit-based award honors a beloved former DIS faculty member, Jacob Buksti, who passed away in 2016. Jacob built a strong legacy in modern Danish politics and made a deep impact on the hundreds of DIS students he taught from 2003 to 2016. Jacob served the Danish Social Democratic Party as a parliamentarian, party spokesperson, and Minister of Transportation during an impressive political career, and he was deeply devoted to sharing his work and passion with U.S. students at DIS. He loved being a politician and, even more than the theories and policy study that fueled his coursework, was passionate about the living, breathing game of European domestic and international politics.
