The University of Borås  offers scholarships to highly qualified students required to pay tuition fees.

The scholarships offered by the University of Borås are intended to partly or fully cover the tuition fee, they are not designed to cover living costs. The payment is not made in monetary terms; instead the tuition fee will be reduced by the amount of the tuition fee waiver.

The University’s criteria in awarding scholarships are good study records as well as qualifications that the University assesses to be in line with the University’s prioritised educational or research areas.
