You will be asked to motivate your choice of study programme and reflect upon its relevance to your own professional development.

Selection process:

Candidates are selected based on study intent and academic achievements. Study intent is evaluated through your individual response to the following essay questions: 

  • What motivated you to apply to this particular programme and why have you chosen Mid Sweden University? (OBS! we mean the study program not the scholarship!)
  • How do the programme objectives relate to your future plans? How will you use your new skills and competencies? 

Candidates for the tuition fee scholarship should be highly motivated and well prepared to take on their studies at Mid Sweden University. 

Academic achievement will be evaluated based on the supporting documents you submitted when applying to Mid Sweden University through University Admissions. You do not have to send in the supporting documents again when applying for the scholarship. In the selection process, an even distribution of students according to gender and country of origin is taken into consideration.

Notification

Applicants will be notified about the selection results by email no later than April 30, 2021. The email address stated in the application form will be used for all correspondence so make sure this information is correct. Students who are offered a scholarship have to reply to the scholarship offer within 7 days. 

Disbursement and scholarship certificate

No money will be disbursed to the scholarship holder. Instead, the scholarship amount will be deducted from the tuition fee invoice, which will be sent to the student. The student will also receive an email which confirms the payment of the tuition fee when the remaining 25% have been paid. No separate scholarship certificate will be provided. 

Mid Sweden University will inform the Swedish Migration Agency that the tuition fee has been paid. Therefore, no certificate is needed for the residence permit application. A scholarship contract will be handed out upon arrival on campus.
