The Sievert Larsson Scholarship

Announcer: Chalmers University of Technology Foundation

Final application date: 15 January 2013

The Foundation's purpose

The Sievert Larsson Scholarship Fund within Friends of Chalmers awards scholarships annually to Thai students who would like to study on a Master’s Programme at Chalmers University of Technology. The Scholarship is your chance to hone your skills with a world class Master’s Degree from Chalmers.
The scholarships will be awarded to Thai citizens who have been accepted onto one of the Master’s Programmes at Chalmers.
 
In the first instance we want to support students who come from financially vulnerable homes and who would not otherwise have the opportunity to study in Sweden.
 
The Scholarship is available in two different versions. Four to seven scholarships will be awarded in 2013, depending on how many scholarships are awarded of the two versions below. 
 
Version 1: Full tuition fee waiver (covers 100% of the tuition fee) during the 2 year programme.
 
Version 2: Full tuition fee waiver (covers 100% of the tuition fee) and 230 000 SEK for costs of living during the 2 year programme.
