Lund University Hardship Scholarship

The Lund University Global Scholarship Fund acquired new funds based on a decision by the Lund University Vice-Chancellor to be used for the Lund University Hardship Scholarship. These funds were reserved for current Lund University students who were encountering financial hardship and having difficulties to manage their tuition fee payments, for instance due to consequences from the corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic or other unexpected events during their study period.

The latest hardship scholarships were awarded during 2020 and 2021.

General eligibility requirements for hardship scholarships:

  • you are a current student at Lund University and have studied at normal study pace for at least one semester and have completed at least 30 ECTS credits
  • you are required to pay tuition fees for your studies at Lund University 
  • you are in financial hardship due to unexpected events
  • you are not a holder of a Swedish Institute Scholarship

Applications for the hardship scholarship are now closed. Any future application periods will be announced on this web page. Please note that you can only apply during the announced application periods.
