Scholarships are a great source of funding for Master's students who are liable to pay tuition fees. Some of these are administered by Chalmers and others by external institutions. Below you will find links to scholarships for both prospective and current students.

Scholarships administered by Chalmers

The separate application for scholarships opens Mid-November 2021.
The scholarships that are listed below are available only to first year Master's programme applicants. They are valid for 2 years of study, under certain conditions. The conditions are outlined in the Scholarship Regulations.


Being granted alternative funding from external patrons does not affect the possibility of obtaining scholarships from Chalmers as an applicant's financial status is not taken into account during the nomination process. Additional scholarships may be appended to the list. Applicants are therefore encouraged to check this webpage regularly.
