Lund University Global Scholarship for current master’s students at LTH

Every year, LTH is allocated scholarships intended for fee-paying students within the framework of the Lund University Global Scholarship, LUGS. The main aim of the LUGS scholarships at LTH is to maximise the number of excellent fee-paying students. This means that LTH always strives to award all allocated funding to recently admitted students. We only set aside funds for current students if we have not succeeded in awarding all scholarships to new students.

LUGS Scholarships in semester 4 

LUGS applications will open to all existing fee-paying students during the spring semester (April/May). 

Scholarships for current students and how to apply (Lund Unviersity's website)

When the LUGS application for current students is open and when the applications are processed, it is not yet settled at LTH whether there will be funding available to award for current students or not, nor how much. Consequently, LTH only awards scholarships for semester 4 and all current fee-paying students will have to pay for the 3rd semester. 

The applicants are ranked according to their academic qualifications:

  • Number of credits in the programme - 60 credits is a minimum requirement
  • Average grade OR a statement from the programme management for programmes with only pass/fail grading - an average grade over 4 is a minimum requirement.
  • Only courses successfully completed during the two first semesters are taken into account. 
  • The cut-off date is one month after the end of the spring semester. Re-takes in August are not taken into account.

In general, a student with 60 credits and high grades is ranked higher than a student with 75 credits and lower grades.

Students who have already been awarded LUGS can only be nominated for an additional scholarship if their current scholarship amounts to 25% or less. Students who are/have been on approved leave from their studies can apply, but under the same criteria as for other students.

If a student who holds a LUGS scholarship proves to be unsuitable as an awardee, the scholarship may be withdrawn. Reasons for withdrawal can be for example:

  • lack of motivation to study (usually a combination of low attendance and insufficient study results, which cannot be attributed to illness or other mitigating circumstances)
  • disciplinary reports
  • legal offences
  • offensive behaviour

An individual review will be conducted in every such case and any recommendation on withdrawal of a scholarship shall be decided by the management group for first and second cycle programmes (LGGU). The final decision on scholarship withdrawal is taken by the vice-chancellor of LU. Follow-up of study results for scholarship recipients will be done after semesters 1 and 2.

Rotary Scholarship - Trip to India

Malmö City Rotary Club is now offering two scholarships for Jagriti Yatra, a 14-day visit to India with the opportunity to meet and interact with representatives of the Indian industry and commerce community. The visit will take place as a train journey around India together with some 450 Indian students, starting December 24th, 2022 in Mumbay and ending there on January 8th, 2023. Jagriti Yatra is the world’s largest train journey.

Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end. As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent. It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year. Rotary is organized world-wide in over 46,000 local clubs.

The purpose of the trip is, together with Indian students, to meet Indian business leaders and reflect and discuss on future technical and economic challenges in a sustainable business society. These two scholarships are offered to third year (or above) students with an entrepreneurial spirit at Lund University in the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and the School of Economics and Management (EHL).

Successful candidates must demonstrate a desire (in their applications) to create and develop a long-term entrepreneurial relationship between Scandinavia (Öresund) and India (as a key selection criterion). We expect participants to share their experience of Jagriti Yatra with Rotary and our regional community by, e.g. presentations.
