Ukrainian students can apply for grants

NEWS Are you a student with a Ukrainian residence and are in Sweden with a permit according to the Temporary Protection Directive? Then you can apply for grants for some living expenses for the spring semester.

Application for grants not open

Currently, there are no grants for living expenses from Umeå University for ukrainian students to apply for. We will update this webpage if/when that changes. 

These grants are made possible thanks to donations dedicated for Ukrainian students at Umeå University. The size of the grants for each student will depend on the size of the donations that the university has received as of 1 February, 2023. The donations will be evenly allocated among all eligible applicants in relation to the number of credits of studies during the spring semester 2023. The grant can however not exceed SEK 11,500 per month. Students without funding via Erasmus will be prioritised.

The initiative was launched by the donation committee in 2022. Vice-Chancellor Hans Adolfsson then said "Our role as a university is to defend core academic values, the freedom of universities, research and higher education, to defend democratic discourse and critical thinking. This initiative is one way to contribute to that."

  • an application form with your name and contact information,
