Lund University Global Scholarships for International Students in Sweden 2018 (Funded)
Lund University attracts high-performing students from around the world. The Lund University Global Scholarship Program aims to reward these students by awarding them academic excellence scholarships.
Scholarship holders have consistently achieved high scores in their previous studies and are rated as good for our programs. The scholarship is selective, competitive and performance-oriented.
Scholarships can cover 25%, 50%, 75% or up to 100% of the tuition fee. The scholarship share awarded depends on the available budget for the program / faculty. It does not reflect the academic achievement level of the students. Please note that scholarships are for tuition only and that the cost of living is not covered. Fellows must continue to be able to finance their living expenses according to the requirements of the Swedish Immigration Service.
