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 for Master's or Bachelor's studies at 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.
