Berghs Bachelor Scholarship

Helping Berghs Bachelor applicants from outside the Stockholm region make their study abroad dreams come true.

The essentials:

  • 2 scholarships awarded per term
  • Simple application process
  • A world of opportunity

Berghs is committed to lowering the economic threshold for Berghs Bachelor candidates coming from outside the Stockholm region, or from other countries.

OBJECTIVE

Today, students from the Stockholm region are overrepresented in the program. The scholarship is designed to support applications from other geographical areas, helping students’ geographic journeys – relocating twice during the program.

The scholarship significantly reduces the tuition fee for the foundation semester, the component of the Berghs Bachelor program that cannot be funded with other means (i.e via Swedish CSN or via other scholarships for University students). 

THE SCHOLARSHIP:

2x scholarships worth 10,000 SEK (excluding Swedish VAT) to be used towards the tuition fee for the Berghs Bachelor semester.

Regular tuition fee for the Bachelor semester Fall 2022:

  • 37,000 SEK without VAT, 47,250 SEK with VAT

Tuition Fee with Scholarship:

  • 27,000 SEK without VAT, 33,750 SEK with VAT

CRITERIA:

  • The scholarship is awarded to students who successfully enrol in the program and who file a compelling Scholarship Application Letter explaining their journey and their motivation for pursuing the Berghs Bachelor program.

  • In your “Scholarship Application Letter”, tell us about yourself, why you deserve the scholarship, and what difference can it make to your journey.
