Lund University Global Scholarship 2024

Lund University standing proudly among the top 100 universities globally and ranked in the top 0.4% has become a beacon for high achieving students from every corner of the world.

Recognizing the exceptional talent that converges within its academic corridors, Lund University has instituted the Global Scholarship Program – a testament to its commitment to fostering academic excellence and global diversity.


Academic Excellence Grants for Exceptional Students

The Lund University Global Scholarship program is an embodiment of the university’s dedication to acknowledging and nurturing high achieving students. Tailored to reward academic excellence, this program serves as a platform to attract and support students who have demonstrated a consistent record of outstanding performance in their previous studies.

Selective, Competitive and Merit Based

In line with Lund University’s commitment to maintaining its high academic standards, the Global Scholarship is a selective and competitive initiative. The selection process is rigorous, ensuring that only the most deserving candidates, with a proven track record of academic brilliance, are granted this prestigious scholarship. Merit is the cornerstone and recipients are chosen based on their academic achievements and their compatibility with Lund University’s diverse array of programs.

Partial to Full Tuition Fee Coverage

One of the standout features of the Lund University Global Scholarship is its flexibility in catering to the financial needs of deserving students. The scholarship grants may cover a portion of the tuition fee or extend to a full coverage, depending on the budget allocated to the specific program or faculty. This flexibility ensures that academic brilliance is not hindered by financial constraints.

Budget Driven, Not Academic Level Dependent

It’s important to note that the percentage of the scholarship awarded is determined by the budget available to the respective program or faculty. This methodology ensures that the scholarship remains inclusive, irrespective of the academic level of excellence displayed by the student. Lund University recognizes that talent knows no financial boundaries and the scholarship program reflects this commitment to providing equal opportunities to all deserving candidates.

Tuition Fee Focus: Living Costs Not Included

While the Lund University Global Scholarship serves as a powerful financial aid tool, it’s essential to understand its specific focus. The scholarship is directed solely towards tuition fees and does not extend to covering living costs. This distinction is vital for prospective applicants to bear in mind, as successful recipients are expected to secure the means to fund their living expenses.

Living Costs Responsibility and Swedish Migration Agency Compliance

Acknowledging the practicalities of student life, Lund University emphasizes that scholarship recipients must be equipped to fund their living costs independently. This aligns with the requirements set forth by the Swedish Migration Agency, ensuring that students can comfortably sustain themselves throughout their academic journey.

  • You must be a citizen of a country from outside the EU/EEA (and Switzerland) and be required to pay tuition fees

As part of the online scholarship application, you need to upload your personal ‘scholarship motivation letter’ (maximum 600 words) in the scholarship application portal.

You can only apply for one Lund University Global Scholarship for the programmes that you have selected at Lund University in a specific application round. However, it is possible for you to apply for other scholarships, for example, the Swedish Institute scholarships in addition.

Selection process – based on academic merits

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, who demonstrate a strong commitment and desire to study at Lund University and who have selected a programme/course at Lund University as their first choice/choices when applying at

As the scholarship is merit based only, no consideration is taken of the student’s financial needs in the selection process.
