“Help an American student get a World Class Education at Chalmers” - Stefan Bengtsson, President Make A Donation* *Tax relieved

Donation Program

We are eager to attract more American students to study at Chalmers and we need your help to make this possible.

Our donation ladder (depicted below) outlines different levels of donations. There are no middle hands, all donations in full, go directly into the scholarship program. We welcome small as well as large donations, any contribution makes a difference.

An individual who donates a full scholarship will be named a “platinum” donor on the donor wall. It is also possible to start a local initiative and get a group of people together to raise funds for a full scholarship. There is a great deal of flexibility when it comes to funding scholarships and we are open to working with donors/donor groups on a case-to-case basis to find a model that is beneficial to all parties.

Scholarships are awarded at a “U.S. Friends of Chalmers Scholarship award ceremony” at a location in the U.S. in May each year. Location varies from year to year, we welcome private initiatives from donors and friends when it comes to venue. The President of Chalmers as well as the Chairman of U.S. Friends of Chalmers are present at the ceremony and all donors are encouraged to attend.
