How to Apply
To apply for a Lund University Global Scholarship, you must first apply for the programme(s) or free-standing course(s) you wish to study at Lund University using the online, national application website, www.universityadmissions.se.
Please note that by applying for the scholarship, this does not exempt you from paying the application fee to University Admissions in Sweden.
You then complete the LU Global Scholarship online application. As part of this online application, you need to upload your scholarship ‘motivation letter’ (maximum 600 words).
Please note that the scholarship “motivation letter” is different from any statement of purpose you may be required to submit as part of your programme application documents. Your scholarship personal “motivation letter” should explain why your academic performance and reasons for applying to Lund University make you an appropriate recipient for a Lund University Global Scholarship.
You can only apply for one Lund University Global Scholarship per programme or free-standing course. However, it is still possible for you to apply to other scholarships, like the Swedish Institute scholarships.
