Every year, Dalarna University awards partial scholarships to a number of its new international, fee-paying Master's students who have proven themselves to be outstanding in their educational endeavours.

Amount of Scholarship

Our scholarships go directly towards a reduction in your tuition fees and will cover between 10 and 50 percent of your total tuition fees. The amount that you are awarded is automatically deducted in set amounts each semester over the duration of your programme. 

Scholarships for new students

Tuition fee waivers are only available for studying a Master's degree programme which is offered on-campus. You only need to apply once for your scholarship and this you do before the start of your programme.
