How to Apply
Step 1: Apply for a Bachelor's or Master's programme
Before you can apply for Uppsala University’s scholarships, you must first apply for one of Uppsala University's international Bachelor's or Master's programmes as your first priority at universityadmissions.se. For programmes starting in the autumn semester 2021, you must submit an online application between 16 October 2020 and 15 January 2021. The deadline for receipt of supporting documents and application fee that are required by University Admissions is 1 February 2021. Find out more on how to apply for Master's programmes or Bachelor's programmes.
Once you have submitted your application at universityadmissions.se, you will get a personal application number consisting of eight digits. Save the number as you will need it when applying for our scholarships.
Step 2: Submit an online scholarship application
After the application period for study programmes ends, the application period for Uppsala University scholarships opens. The application to University Admissions and application for Uppsala University scholarships have two separate application procedures. You must submit one separate online application for our scholarships during our scholarship application period 16 January – 1 February 2021.
In the online scholarship application form, you do not need to submit any documents. In the form, you need to fill in your personal details, the Bachelor's or Master's programme at Uppsala University that you applied for as your first priority, and your application number that you got at universityadmissions.se. You must also specify which scholarship programme(s) you are applying to. Additionally, you need to write a motivation letter explaining why you should be awarded the scholarship. Your motivation letter should not exceed 350 words and should reflect the eligibility criteria of the scholarship programme.
You may apply to more than one scholarship programme, as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. However, it is only possible to be awarded one scholarship from Uppsala University.
There is no application fee when applying for Uppsala University's scholarships. However, there is an application fee when applying for your study programmes on universityadmissions.se.
Please submit your scholarship application on time. We do not accept late applications.
Please do not apply for the scholarship if you:
- do not meet the entry requirements for admission to Uppsala University;
- have not selected a programme at Uppsala University as your first choice in your application at universityadmissions.se;
- will not be able to secure the funding needed to cover your cost of living, as required by the Swedish Migration Agency, even if you are awarded a scholarship that covers the cost of tuition. See the information about the cost of living for students in Sweden.
Uppsala University’s scholarships are for students who are liable to pay tuition fees. The selection is merit-based. The scholarships are aimed at academically talented students who show an interest in being in an educational environment. Information about your academic performance will be obtained from the supporting documents that you submit when applying to Master's or Bachelor's studies at universityadmissions.se. The written motivational letter filled in your online scholarship application is also taken into account in the selection process.
Financial need is not a factor we consider.
The scholarship selection process takes place at the same time as the programme admission selection process. In order to be admitted to a study programme and be awarded a scholarship, you must meet all the general and programme-specific entry requirements for the study programme, as well as all the eligibility criteria for the scholarship programme.
Applicants who submit incomplete applications or do not apply on time will not be considered for a scholarship at Uppsala University.
