External scholarship opportunities

Along with scholarships awarded by Uppsala University, it may be possible for fee-paying prospective international students to apply for financial assistance from external organisations.

External scholarships have different application systems, deadlines and criteria than those awarded by Uppsala University. They are not managed by Uppsala University.
