You want to Study in Sweden for free, here is the Global Scholarship Programme for international students by Lund University. Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students can apply for this scholarship programme. Let’s have all details in this article about Lund University Global Scholarship.
Lund University is top-ranked 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.
What are benefits?
Approximately SEK 15 million awarded in scholarship grants each year. It is merit-based scholarship to recognise top academic students from outside the EU.
Scholarship grants may cover partial or up to the full tuition fee. The scholarship percentage awarded depends on the budget available to the programme/faculty. It has no reflection on the students’ academic level of excellence. Please note that scholarships are toward tuition fees only and that living costs are not covered. Scholarship recipients must still be able to fund their living costs, as per the requirements of the Swedish Migration Agency.
What is Eligibility Criteria?
To be eligible to apply for a scholarship you must meet all of the following criteria:
You must be a citizen of a country from outside the EU and are required to pay a tuition fee.
You have made a complete application for Bachelor’s or Master’s level studies at Lund University in a regular application round for a minimum of one semester of study (30 ECTS).
Priority is given to students who have ranked a programme at Lund University as the first choice in their application at universityadmissions.se.
You cannot apply for the scholarship if You do not meet the admission requirements to Lund University.
You cannot apply for the scholarship if You cannot secure the funding needed to cover living costs, as required by the Swedish Migration Agency.
What is Application Process?
To be able to apply and be considered for a Lund University Global Scholarship, you must first have applied to the programme(s) or free-standing course(s) you wish to study at Lund University. You do this through the online, national application website – www.universityadmissions.se – during the application period. Once you have made a complete application to a degree programme or free-standing courses of at least 30 ECTS credits, and have paid the application fee, you will be able to apply for the scholarship.
The scholarship portal is different from the national application portal for studies. The link to the scholarship application portal is published on the Lund University web page during the scholarship application period.
As part of the online scholarship application, you need to upload your personal ‘scholarship motivation letter’ (maximum 600 words) in the scholarship application portal. 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-specific application documents. 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 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 to other scholarships, for example, Swedish Institute Scholarship in addition.

What is Selection Criteria?
The selection process is based on academic merits. The selection process for scholarships is undertaken in parallel with the programme selection process. Priority will be given to students with high academic performance, who are assessed as a good fit for the programme, who demonstrate a strong commitment and desire to study at Lund University and who have selected a programme or course at Lund University as their first choice when applying at www.universityadmissions.se.
As the scholarship is merit-based only, no consideration is taken of the students’ financial needs in the selection process.
