As a top 100 university and ranked in the top 0.4% of universities in the world, 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 our programmes. The scholarship is selective, competitive and merit-based.
More scholarship opportunities are ongoing in countries across Europe, the United States and Canada. Check out some selected opportunities below:

The selection process for scholarships is undertaken in parallel with the programme/course selection process.

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

Your scholarship motivation letter should explain why your academic performance and reasons for applying to Lund University make you a suitable potential recipient for a Lund University Global Scholarship.
You can only apply for one Lund University Global Scholarship for the programmes or courses 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.
