LiU International Scholarships - second year

This page explains the process of awarding LiU International Scholarships for the second year of studies for fee-paying master's students on two-year programmes.

Students who have received a scholarship from the first year of studies

LiU International Scholarships are awarded for the whole study period on the condition that sufficient academic progress is achieved during the first year as measured on July 1st. Read more on rules and regulations

Students who have received a scholarship from the beginning of their studies are not required to submit an application for an extension for the second year. If the study results are acceptable, the scholarship will be prolonged.

Students who have not made sufficient academic progress will lose the scholarship and will be required to pay fees to be able to continue their studies.

Students who would like to apply for a second-year scholarship 

Fee-paying students who have achieved excellent academic results during their first academic year may be eligible to apply for a scholarship for the second year of study. 

You cannot apply for a scholarship starting from the second semester of the first year.

A few scholarships will be awarded to second-year students for the academic year 2021/2022. The application period is going to be 23-30 April. The application for 2021/2022 is now over.

Swedish Institute Scholarships - extension

Holders of Swedish Institute (SI) scholarships need to submit documents after the first semester of studies, showing satisfactory study progress has been made, in order to be able to receive continued scholarship from third semester.

Students who do not make satisfactory study progress or leave Sweden without prior agreement with SI will be reported and may lose their scholarship support; in some cases, repayment may be demanded.
