The Lars Erik Lundberg Scholarship Foundation

The Lars Erik Lundberg Scholarship Foundation grants scholarships to doctoral students in subject areas encompassed by the overall concept of the built environment. Scholarships are intended for doctoral students who intend to carry out research, preferably full-time, and have been offered supervision at a higher education institution, but do not have a doctoral studentship and are not receiving any other funding.

The Lars Erik Lundberg Scholarship Foundation grants scholarships to doctoral students in subject areas encompassed by the overall concept of the built environment. Scholarships are intended for doctoral students who intend to carry out research, preferably full-time, and have been offered supervision at a higher education institution, but do not have a doctoral studentship and are not receiving any other funding.

Thus, scholarships are not offered to higher education institutions, employed doctoral students, or those who have doctoral grants.

By amendments to the Higher Education Ordinance in 2018, doctoral students adopted from July 1st, 2018 must have a formal employment not later than three years of full-time studies remaining in the doctoral studies. This means that scholarship funding for these can usually only be considered during the first year.

For a doctoral student admitted before July 1st, 2018, the foundation can support the student for all years until the doctorate.

The applicant is expected to meet the requirements for scholarship funding, as amended by the Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 2017-947). That this is the case is the responsibility of the applicant and the university.

The scholarship for 2019 may begin to be lifted no earlier than May 2019 and at the latest in April 2020. If project launch is planned or postponed until later than April 2020, the scholarship will be canceled and, instead, a new application must be made in the next year’s application; February 2020. The applicant must be formally admitted as a doctoral student at the university by the time at the first scholarship payment.

The scholarship goes to the student personally and is tax-exempt. It is calculated to cover basic living expenses and accommodation for a doctoral student for one year. The scholarship consists of monthly payments, currently SEK 24,000 per month, for a maximum of 12 months. Accordingly, a full-year scholarship for postgraduate studies on a full-time basis is currently SEK 288,000. If the student intends to undertake postgraduate studies part-time or full-time for only part of the year, this must be stated in the application and the scholarship amount will be adjusted accordingly. Generally, around ten scholarships are granted each year.

The Lars Erik Lundberg Foundation for Research and Education

The Lars Erik Lundberg Foundation for Research and Education supports projects that bring together the fields of engineering/science and economics and thereby focus on the role of technology in the competitiveness of enterprises. This area includes research with a business economics and technology orientation related to the dynamics involved in building, developing and exploiting the technical know-how of businesses. Projects involving research into production and product development processes also fit into this area, as do projects related to the conditions which are fundamental to an innovative business climate, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.

Support can be paid to both senior scientists and PhD students. Support is normal for a project period of 1-3 years.

Usually are two to three research Projects granted funding each year.
