To improve the welfare of all stipend-funded doctoral students who have been admitted to a Swedish state university or university college, it is the Government's opinion that higher education institutions should provide insurance cover with Kammarkollegiet for those cases doctoral student stipends are reduced due to absence from studies in the case of illness or parental leave. Such insurance should apply in those cases the doctoral student does not enjoy the equivalent insurance cover from another source (Govt. Bill 2012/13:30 p. 174).
In 2013, Kammarkollegiet was instructed by the Government to develop an insurance policy that provides compensation when doctoral student stipends are reduced due to absence from studies in the case of illness, parental leave or temporary parental leave.
