Travel scholarships

For current students who need to travel in connection with their studies
Travel scholarships for undergraduate and Master’s students are announced in February each year. Travel scholarships are awarded for study abroad or travel in connection with degree projects and for foreign travel that benefits a student’s university studies in some way.

Apply between 14–28 February!

The application for travel scholarhips is open between 14–28 Februari 2017. You can apply for scholarships for travel that started no earlier than 1 March 2016, and for planned travel up until 28 February 2018. Please apply before 16:00 on the day of the deadline! After 16:00 there will not be any staff available to answer questions you may have.

Please note that we only accept scholarships applications that are submitted during the application period.

How to apply

When the application period is open, you apply through the online application system (unless stated otherwise in the respective call for applications).

Note that although most of the text in the application form is available in English the text in the initial drop down menu is not. To apply for a travel grant, select "Resestipendier grundutbildningsstuderande".

The scholarships are distributed based on the purpose of your trip, and ranked based on your academic grades as well as your application and the supporting documents you attach to it. Make sure to include relevant documents with your application so that you do not miss out because of an incomplete application. You do not need to submit you transcript of records from Ladok to show us your grades, as we have access to this information.

Please note!

  • You should only make one application per trip, as your application will be matched with the scholarships that you are eligible for.
  • Carefully read through the call for applications to be sure that you are eligible to apply and that you submit the correct supporting documents. The decision to award a travel scholarship is based only on what is written in the application and on your supporting documents. You should include documents that prove the purpose of your trip, such as a certificate issued by your supervisor, an invitation letter, an acceptance letter or other documents which are relevant for the type of trip you are going to do.
  • Remember to fill in estimated costs for your trip. As a rule, SEK 5,000 are awarded per scholarship. Exceptions include the "Reg läk dr Hartelius’ stipendiestiftelse" and "Nils Flensburgs resestipendiefond" funds, where larger amounts may be awarded.
  • The awarded scholarship cannot be used for a trip, on another occasion or for a purpose, other than that specified in the decision.
  • You can only apply for the scholarships via the application system during the application period.


Decisions are usually announced in April each year in the online application system and via email to the successful applicants. The decision will contain information on which supporting documents you need to submit to secure your scholarship (for example a copy of an acceptance letter, letter of invitation, travel documents, or similar). We will also ask you to submit a Requisition Form ("rekvisitionsblankett"), which you will find in the online application system, near the respective application that has been granted.
