Summer scholarships 2019

The Research Studies Board hereby announces partially funded two-month summer scholarships aimed for students at the Faculty of Medicine’s undergraduate and advanced programmes.

The two-month scholarship (with payment in June and July) shall be used for an eight-week summer research project within any of the courses VMFX70, VMFX71 or VMFX72 during the period June-August 2019.

The scholarships are awarded to students at all stages of their education in accordance with the criteria stated for each course. Students cannot be awarded more than three summer scholarships each. Please note that students who are non-EU / EEA citizens have to pay tuition fees.

Apply for the scholarships using the online form The application generates a PDF file that you have to save and email to the following address sommarstipendier [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se together with an excerpt from LADOK. The email with the completed form must be sent no later than 2019-01-14.

Please note that the current application is only for the scholarship and the application for the course is made by submitting a project plan in April 2019. Hence, the applicant does not need to have a supervisor or project in place at the time of the scholarship application. All students must, on their own, find a supervisor who is willing to supervise and pay half (50%) of the scholarship. When the student and the supervisor have agreed on a suitable project, the student writes a project plan with support from the supervisor. The project plan should be submitted for approval April 22, 2019. (The project can be long-term, but should be shaped in such a way as to allow the student to achieve at least some results within the two-month period).

The Research Studies Board cannot finance all applicants, and the students will receive notification whether their application for scholarship is approved or not. If your application for scholarship is not approved, you may still be able to do a summer research project if you can find a supervisor who is willing to pay the full (100%) scholarship. The establishment of such a scholarship is easier if the applicant has applied for a scholarship within this call, therefore, we recommend that you apply if you consider doing a project during the summer 2019.

Summer research projects

The summer research projects are 3 courses worth 15 credits each. The courses start after the introductory day in June, and the results are presented in the form of a brief abstract/report and an oral presentation for other scholarship holders and the Executive Committee in August.

More information can be found on the course homepage (link to other website)

The total scholarship amount was SEK 21,000 in 2018 (SEK 10,500 per month, non-taxable).
