Scholarships

The student union in Sundsvall receives continuous information about new and old scholarships that are possible to apply for. Unfortunately, this also means that we have limited opportunities to keep our own register active. We therefore refer to https://www.globalgrant.com/search to see a wide list of foundations and funds that offer scholarships for your studies. 

Please note that we do NOT encourage students to pay for application processes. We ask you instead to search for each foundation's and fund's own website to first find out if there is a free application process.
