2016 Lund University Global Scholarship programme For Study In Sweden

2016 Lund University Global Scholarship programme For Study In Sweden

The Lund University Global Scholarship programme (LUGS) is targeted at top academic students who are citizens of countries from outside the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) and Switzerland wishing to study a bachelors or masters course.

Lund University attracts high achieving students from across the globe. The Lund University Global Scholarship programme seeks to recognise these students by awarding academic excellence grants.

Scholarship recipients have a proven record of achieving consistently high grades in their previous studies and are assessed as being a good fit for the university programmes. The scholarship is selective, competitive and merit-based.

Lund University Global Scholarships

Course(s) Offered: All fields
Course Level: Undergraduate (bachelors), Graduate (masters)
Provider: Lund University
Country to Study in: Sweden

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.

Scholarship criteria:
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.

Eligible groups
Citizens of ALL nationalities can apply (EXCEPT citizens of EU/EEA countries and Switzerland).

Participating Institutions
Lund University, Lund, Sweden

Fields of study
All bachelors and masters level fields and/or courses of study at Lund University. For more, see Applying for Programme(s) or free-standing Course(s) at Lund University.

Scholarship duration
The LUGS award lasts the whole duration of programme study

Scholarship benefits
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.

Method of Application
Please do not apply if:

  • You do not meet the admission requirements to Lund University
  • You cannot secure the funding needed to cover living costs, as required by the Swedish Migration Board

To apply for a Lund University Global Scholarship, you must first apply for the programme(s) or free-standing course(s) you wish to study at Lund University using the online, national application website, www.universityadmissions.se/, during the application time for autumn semester studies.

You then apply for a Lund University Global Scholarship using the online Application Form (found on the official website via link below – the online form is available when the application period is open). Please note that by applying for the scholarship, this does not exempt you from paying the application fee to University Admissions in Sweden.

As part of the online application, you need to upload your CV and your scholarship “motivation letter” (maximum 500 words). Please note that the scholarship “motivation letter” is different from any statement of purpose you may be required to submit as part of your programme application documents.

It is important to visit both the online Swedish national application site (link to it is above); AND also the official University website (link to it is below) for complete information on how to apply.

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).

Application Deadline: 15 August 2016
Open to International students: Yes
