The Lars Erik Lundberg Scholarship Foundation aims to help more students to have the opportunity to do research and achieve doctorates in the area of the built environment, which includes architecture, building technology, urban planning, housing and property management.
The aims of the Foundation are furthered by means of personal, monthly scholarships to young postgraduate students at Sweden’s universities and institutes of technology who lack employment or other funding for their living expenses.
The Foundation grants around ten scholarships every year and has increased the size of the scholarship for the 2020 application year. A full-year scholarship will now amount to SEK 300,000, corresponding to SEK 25,000 per month.
The foundation refers to the change in the The Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 2017: 947), where the possibility for a doctoral student to receive a scholarship is regulated.
