It’s been a decade since the first international students received the Lund University Global Scholarship. This scholarship programme, in short “LUGS”, is merit-based and covers fully or partially the tuition fee. It was introduced in 2011 to attract high achieving students from all around the world. A global classroom, with a diverse student group, is an important part of the education experience at Lund University.
Since 2011 hundreds of international students have received the LUGS scholarship every semester. A recent survey to LUGS alumni, shows that the scholarship plays an important role for students choosing to go to Lund. The survey also shows that quite a few of our scholarship recipients enjoy their time in Sweden so much that they stay for a future career. Other scholarship recipients graduate to try their wings at employers around Europe while others decide to pursue their careers back home.
To commemorate the 10-year jubilee of the Lund University Global Scholarship programme, we will reconnect with some of the alumni from the scholarship programme during this autumn. Stay tuned!
