Chalmers MasterCard launch new international scholarship

Chalmers MasterCard holders support a large number of student-run projects at the university each year.
Now Chalmers MasterCard are raising ambitions and investing in a new scholarship for foreign masters students from Central and South America.
‘Chalmers need to maintain high international class and attract excellent students outside Europe,’ said university alumni coordinator, Peter Hellqvist.
The Chalmers MasterCard is no ordinary card. Half a percent of all purchasing amounts is returned directly to university students by means of support for projects and master’s thesis work. A simple way to support the engineers and architects of the future.
In this way, a total of 451,000 Swedish crowns were shared out to various student technology projects at home and abroad during 2012.
A special investment is now being made in paying masters students by means of launching The Chalmers MasterCard Scholarship.
Potential chalmerists from Central and South America – including Mexico – can apply for the scholarship worth 280,000 Swedish crowns and that covers study fees for all master’s programs except Architecture.
’Chalmers needs to maintain a high international standard and attract excellent students from outside Europe. Personally, I think it’s fantastic that our scholarship program can contribute in this way. I feel very pleased and very proud,’ said Peter Hellqvist, alumni coordinator at Chalmers and responsible for Chalmers MasterCard.
A high presence of international students provides great advantages for all students at Chalmers:
‘Our Swedish technology students benefit from a cosmopolitan student environment that prepares them for the global labour market,’ said Peter Hellqvist.
