There are a number of scholarships available each year for fee-paying international students who are applying to an international Bachelor’s or Master’s programme at Uppsala University.
Some scholarships are specifically designated for students who are applying to one of Uppsala University’s Master’s programmes, while others are open to both Master’s and Bachelor’s applicants. Some scholarships are open for all citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, whilst others are only open to citizens of certain countries.
The scholarships available for application may vary from year to year. The list of citizenships that are eligible for the King Carl Gustaf Scholarship also varies from year to year. Before you submit your application(s), be sure to read the information about each scholarship thoroughly and that you understand the conditions. You may apply to more than one scholarship programmes, as long as you fulfil the eligibility criteria. However, it is only possible to receive one scholarship from Uppsala University.
The scholarships are only for on-campus programmes based in Uppsala or on Gotland, and for programmes mainly taught at Uppsala University. You can only be awarded a scholarship for programmes that you apply via universityadmissions.se. However, you cannot be awarded a scholarship for the Master’s programmes in Religion in Peace and Conflict, Biology Genetic and Molecular Plant Science, Biology NABiS Nordic Master in Biodiversity and Systematics, Sino-Swedish Master in Computer Science – Software Engineering, or the Joint Nordic Master’s Programme in Environmental Law.
The application period for scholarships provided by Uppsala University for prospective students is from 16 January to 1 February 2021.
The deadline is 23:59 CET (Central European Time) 1 February 2021. Please consider the time zone. Applications received after the deadline will not be processed.
