The 2018/2019 academic year at Chalmers will be a good one for U.S. students wanting to study at Chalmers. At the moment, we know there will be at least three scholarships. Rune Andersson, Chalmers alumnus, businessman and generous supporter of his Alma Mater has agreed to direct some of the funds he has donated to Chalmers in the past to a scholarship for an American student. And thanks to an amendment to the stipulations of the Pro Suecia Foundation funds, these can now also be used to fund American students studying at Chalmers.
This means that we can guarantee more scholarships to be awarded and also open up for more people to get involved and make a difference in a student’s life. At the moment we have two scholarships filled and a third one open for donations. It is still possible to buy a share in the third scholarship by donating a minimum of $100 by March 31st, 2018. Anyone who has bought a share will be listed as donors (in accordance with the in the donor ladder below) on a donor list which will be attached to the scholarship diploma. If you donate USD 100-999 you will be listed as a supporter, USD 1000 – 4999 lists you as a Bronze level donor and so on, as depicted in the donation ladder just below.
Increased visibility in North America
In an effort to increase the knowledge about Chalmers and hopefully the number of U.S. applicants, there is a special focus on student recruitement from North America this year. The international recruitment team will participate in the QS World Grad School Tour and take part in three different exhibitions; Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver.
