Scholarship application

The scholarship application has to be made online and it consists of two steps. We encourage you to apply for scholarships as soon as possible, but no later than 16 January (Note that it is no longer possible to apply for any
scholarships administered by Chalmers
), since this will greatly expedite the assessment process. However, there is no correlation between how early an application is made and the likelihood of receiving a scholarship.

  • Step 1

Fill in and submit the online form Note that it is no longer possible to apply for any scholarships administered by Chalmers. Please note that the electronic application form is used only for the scholarships awarded by Chalmers. You may apply for multiple scholarships provided that the eligibility requirements are fulfilled. All submitted data must be verifiable against the documents received by University Admissions in Sweden as part of your Master’s programme application at

The only exception is additional data required by Chalmers when applying for the Sievert Larsson Scholarship (Thai citizens only)

  • Step 2

Soon after you have submitted the online form (step 1), you will be sent a unique link to the scholarship application portal. Please note that it may take a few days until you receive the link. If you have not received it, please check your junk mail.


Make sure that you have your application number at hand, from when you made your online application to a Master's programme at, as you will be required to fill it in. In this step you will also be asked to submit a letter of intent/motivation so if you haven't done it already, be sure to do so by uploading it into your personal account at University admissions.

Letter of intent/motivation (item 9 on the list).

If you do not have all necessary information at hand to complete all steps of the electronic application form, your scholarship application may not be considered.

Notification and mandatory confirmation requirement

  • Scholarship notifications will be sent out by Chalmers between March and Mid-April. In order to keep your scholarship, you have to accept the offered study place on your account at University Admissions. Make sure you do so by the specified deadline.
