University and student nation scholarships

Scholarships for current Lund University students

The University scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and Master’s students. The student nation scholarships are awarded to undergraduate, Master’s and research students. You often have to have studied for at least two semesters at Lund University to get a scholarship.

When to apply

Twice a year – usually in February and September – current Lund University students are invited to apply for University and nation scholarships. Students are most likely to get a scholarship when they are in their 5–8th semester at Lund University.

The next application period will be open in September 2021. Please note that we only accept applications submitted during the application period.

Who can apply?

  • The University scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and Master’s students.
  • The student nation scholarships are awarded to undergraduate, Master’s and research students.

You are most likely to get a scholarship when you are in your 5–8th semester at Lund University. Also note that most of the scholarships are only open to Swedish students due to the nature of the scholarship set up (eg connections to a Swedish family name, Swedish city etc). However, there are some scholarships that are open to international students currently studying at Lund University.

How to apply for a University or student nation scholarship

The University and nation scholarships are a collection of about 250 scholarships; however, you only make one application for the University and nation scholarships as your application will be matched with all of the scholarships that you are eligible for. 

Applications are made through the online application system. 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 choose 'University and student nation scholarships' select 'Universitets- och nationsstipendier'.

How we select scholarship recipients

Applicants are ranked according to field, grades and study tempo. Only credits from Lund University are counted. Since your Lund University credits are registered in Ladok (a computer system for documentation of study results) you don't need to submit any documents proving your academic record.

Please check with your department that all your credits have been entered into Ladok. Please also check that your official Swedish personal identification number is recorded in Ladok (not the temporary personal number you were given when you first arrived in Sweden).

Some of the University and student nation scholarships give priority to, for example, students who are members of a particular nation, students who are born in Lund or students who are studying a particular subject. In some cases, you might need to provide supporting documents to demonstrate that you fulfil certain criteria, if so, you will find information about this in the application system.

Decision

Decisions are usually announced in April for the spring semester and November for the autumn semester. Please note that no notifications will be sent out via email, but the results will be available in the online application system.

The results for this spring's application period are now available in the application system. The scholarships will be paid out during weeks 17 and 18. If you have not provided an account number in your application, you will be contacted by us directly.
