​Call for applications to Minor Field Studies and The Global Mentorship Program

Are you interested in a master’s thesis based on data from low- and middle-income countries? Chalmers have two scholarships where you can get support for longer field studies abroad during your master’s thesis.

The aim is to create an opportunity for students to get unique experiences through their work. The idea is to work with internationally interesting sustainable solutions for global challenges within the framework of a thesis.
Both scholarships have the same deadline for application on November 7 and the field study should be performed during spring 2022.


Minor Field Studies

This scholarship is funded by Universitets- och högskolerådet (UHR) and one aim is that students should improve their knowledge of global development issues and to prepare for work in global contexts and organizations. The thesis topic should be of importance to economic, social, political or knowledge-based development in the country that the student travel to.
