The Diversity Scholarship

The University's diversity scholarship is awarded annually to a thesis project at the undergraduate level (lowest specialization level G2E) or advanced level which particularly distinguishes itself in the theme of diversity.

The thesis project must have been completed and examined at the University of Skövde during the previous spring or autumn semester and must have a consistent theme and structure (background, purpose, problem formulation method, results and conclusion) with a clear connection to the area of diversity / equal conditions based on one or more of the recognized grounds for discrimination.

Diversity as theme

The theme of diversity can include many different aspects, but special consideration is given to subject areas that are linked to ethnicity, gender, gender identity or gender expression, sexual orientation, religion or other belief, age and disability.

Application deadline

The application must be received by the University of Skövde no later than 15 February. The scholarship holder will be notified in the Spring and the award ceremony will also take place during Spring. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
