Lund University in Sweden is pleased to invite applicants for the Lund University Global Scholarship 2023. This Lund University Scholarship for International Students is mainly for Undergraduate and Master students seeking to study their degree program in Sweden.
About Lund University
Lund University’s Global Scholarship program is aimed at top academic students who are citizens of countries outside the European Union/European Economic Area (and Switzerland). As one of the top 100 universities and ranked in the top 0.4% of universities in the world, Lund University attracts high-achieving students from all over the world.
The Lund University Global Scholarship program seeks to recognize these students by awarding academic excellence scholarships. Scholarship recipients have a proven track record of consistently achieving high grades in their prior studies and are considered a good fit for our programs.
The scholarship is selective, competitive, and merit-based.
The scholarships can cover 25%, 50%, 75%, or up to 100% of the tuition. The scholarship percentage awarded depends on the budget available to the program/faculty. It does not reflect the academic level of excellence of the students.
Please note that the scholarships are for tuition fees only and living costs are not covered. Scholars must still be able to finance their living costs, according to the requirements of the Swedish Migration Board. The best academic students have a proven track record of consistently achieving high marks in previous studies.
Level/field of study
Scholarships are available to pursue Undergraduate and Masters degrees in any of the university’s fields.
