Summer School Scholarship

Many schools in Europe and in the rest of the world offers courses during the summertime but usually for a fee. Taking the opportunity to study at a foreign school is a great idea if you for instance do not have a summer job, or if you would like to take courses that are simply not available in Uppsala. The courses can usually be credited and you can also get great memories and learn a lot!

Uppsalaekonomerna gives out a Summer School Scholarship each year since 2014 to a student in order to make it possible for that student to go study at a foreign university during the summer. You choose yourself what and where you want to study but it should be a prominent and highly ranked university.  Previous receivers of the scholarship have went to Berkely in California and London School of Economis in London.

The application for the scholarship open during the spring and instructions on how to apply will be available on social media and at Uppsalaekonomerna’s website. The scholarship is then formally presented during the spring ball in May.

The amount is always decided by the board beforehand and is 25 000 SEK for 2018.
