Chalmers MasterCard – for more brilliant ideas

Chalmers Mastercard is the credit card that supports Chalmers' proud architectural and engineering tradition.

The Chalmers MasterCard is a credit card and your purchases and withdrawals are listed on a monthly invoice. The card is linked to MasterCard and is valid at millions of points of sale and a million ATMs worldwide.

Every time you buy something with your card, 0.5% of the amount is donated to Chalmers. The money is paid into the Friends of Chalmers fund and awarded to students in the form of scholarships. Every two years, a scholarship is also awarded to an international student, who has the opportunity to study for a master’s degree at Chalmers.

At the moment, it is not possible to apply for new cards because Ecster and Chalmers are in the process of phasing out Chalmers Mastercard. More information will be published here.
