Lund University Global Scholarships for Undergraduate and Masters non-European Students in Sweden
Scholarship grants may cover 25%, 50%, 75% or up to 100% of the tuition fee. The scholarship percentage awarded depends on budget available to the programme/faculty. It has no reflection on the students’ academic level of excellence.
The scholarship value is deducted from the tuition fee of the programme or free-standing course for which you are awarded a scholarship.
Please note that scholarships are toward tuition fees only and that living costs are not covered. Scholarship recipients must still be able to fund their living costs, as per the requirements of the Swedish Migration Board.
The LUGS award lasts the whole duration of programme study
The application period is now open for students applying for studies starting Autumn (i.e. August/September 2016). The application period is late October until January 15. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is 15 January 2016.
Application period for the Spring semester (January 2017) will commence 1 June until 15 August. Deadline to apply for studies starting Spring is 15 August 2016. Note that only a few programmes start in Spring each year.
In general, all international students wishing to study Bachelor’s or Master’s level programmes and courses at a Swedish university must apply online within the application periods, using the national University Admissions in Sweden website.
Please note that the LUGS programme is not open to students who have already started the programme or course for which they would like a scholarship to help cover tuition fees. Please instead refer to information on the scholarships for current students’ webpage.
Lund University is one of Europe’s oldest universities and one of Scandinavia’s largest institutions for education and research. It is consistently ranked among the world’s top 100 universities (and top 0.4% of world universities).
The LUGS programme is open for ALL citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA (and Switzerland).
Eligible students MUST have applied for Bachelor’s or Master’s level studies in a regular application round at Lund University, Sweden for a minimum of one semester of study (the equivalent of 30 ECTS full-time study).
In addition, eligible applicants MUST be those who are required to pay tuition fees.
The selection process for scholarships is undertaken in parallel with the programme/course selection process. Priority will be given to students with high academic performance, who are assessed as a good fit for the programme and who demonstrate a strong commitment and desire to study at Lund University.
As the scholarship is merit based only, no consideration is taken of the students’ financial needs in the selection process.
