Students admitted to the Master’s Programme in Industrial Design can apply for scholarships depending on their country of origin.

Scholarship for living expenses

The scholarship was founded in 2001 and is aimed at students with difficulties affording the living costs in Sweden. Each of the two scholarships awarded every year are for SEK 100 000 per year (about EUR 10 000) and aim to cover the cost of living and accommodation for ten months, from August to May, during the two years of study. This scholarship is open to all students admitted to the programme.


Selection of scholarship recipients is based on a personal motivation statement included in the application form below.

Scholarship for tuition fees

When the Swedish government decided to apply tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students, the Stichting IKEA Foundation established two new scholarships for tuition fees. Each scholarship is SEK 210 000 per year for two years.


Selection of scholarship recipients is based on the applicants’ portfolio, and the tuition fees will be paid directly to Lund University. This scholarship is only open to non-EU/EEA citizens admitted to the programme.

Announcement of scholars

Information regarding the scholarship recipients will be published in April 2021, following a formal decision by the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering. 

Submit the application form no later than 1 February 2021.
