From the autumn semester 2023 we are glad to announce that Linnaeus University will introduce a student scholarship in collaboration with IKEA and Södra through our unique collaboration The Bridge.
The scholarship is ONLY for students applying to the master’s programme Innovation through Business, Engineering and Design as their first choice in your application through www.universityadmissions.se. You can apply for the scholarship for any of the three disciplines.
The scholarship is a full comprehensive scholarship that covers 100 % of the tuition fee for the programme and helps to cover living costs. The student will receive 9 450 SEK/month for living expenses. The scholarship does not cover the application fee of 900 SEK. The next application round will be on 8 February 2023 and is for students applying for the autumn semester of 2023.
The scholarship is initially granted for one semester. It will automatically be extended for the duration of the programme, if study results are satisfactory and the student fulfils our scholarship regulations.
Linnaeus University is a state university in the Swedish historical province Småland, with two campuses located in Växjö and Kalmar respectively. Linnaeus University was established in 2010 by a merger of former Växjö University and Kalmar University, and is named in honour of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus.
The scholarship is a full comprehensive scholarship that covers 100 % of the tuition fee for the programme and helps to cover living costs. The student will receive 9 450 SEK/month for living expenses. The scholarship does not cover the application fee of 900 SEK.
The decision to award scholarships will primarily be based on the students' academic merits. Usually, this is based on the CGPA, but the ranking of the previous university and the students' proficiency in English will also be considered. Linnaeus University also favors an even distribution of students when it comes to country of origin and gender.
The scholarship is funded by IKEA, Södra and Linnaeus University through the collaboration The Bridge.
