U.S. Friends of Chalmers University of Technology Inc. is registered with IRS as a 501(c)(3) corporation and operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes. The corporation was founded in May of 2002 by Chalmers together with a group of alumni with the aim of supporting education and research at Chalmers University of Technology through financial donations and contact building in the United States. It was the first organization of its kind in the U.S. for a Swedish university, proving how strongly many of the Chalmers alumni feel for their unique “Chalma Mater”.
In recent years, U.S. Friends of Chalmers focus has been on funding scholarships for American students to get their Master’s Degree at Chalmers. So far, eight students have been offered this opportunity since 2012 and we are aiming for many more to come.
