Reward – Extra Benefits
With the reward, students will receive 7,000 EUR to the university of there choice, or as we are depicting Lund University as the chosen option. The 7,000 EUR would go directly towards paying tuition costs.
It is not stated if the amount in total should be spent solely on tuition, but as suspected, certain universities only allow scholarship funding to be spent on specific sections of a students tuition. Such as tuition fees, book fees, or transportation.
