Ok, you’re probably already anxious and thinking THIS IS IT, my time has come, so how do I do it. How do I apply to the  Lund University’s 350th Jubilee Scholarship competition.

1. Register here.

2. Find the programme that best works for you; this is a very important step, evaluate the syllabus and look for more than one so you can compare and have a clear vision of what you really want.

3. The real thing begins, now you have to compete for it. For this scholarship they are looking for people who share the vision of Lund University and at the same time want to make the world a better place. So at the digital platform, the one where you first register, you have to:

b) Write a personal statement (maximum 500 words) highlighting what makes you unique.

c) Write a short essay (maximum 500 words) within the subject area, which you choose to study and describe how the knowledge and experience you gain while studying at Lund University will help improve the world or the human condition and how you can personally contribute to it.

Here you can find the rules, more details about the competition and a super-helpful scholarship timeline.

Remember you have to submit all this before the deadline on 15th February 2017 and the winners will be announced in April 2017.

DON’T FORGET together with the scholarship application you also have to apply to the programme at Lund University following the regular application process.
