Climate Scholarship for students and alumni


For the second time, we announce this scholarship for students who have done things for the climate and now want to do more. The Cornelius-Ernströmgruppen Climate Scholarship can be applied for by students at the advanced level and by new alumni.

Everyone has a responsibility to help reduce the negative impact on the climate, and with this scholarship, Pontus Cornelius, Ernströmgruppen and the School of Business, Economics and Law want to encourage students and alumni to continue acting for the climate.

The scholarship covers SEK 50,000 and can be applied for by a student or by a group of students. Students must be studying at the advanced level at the School of Business, Economics and Law. Alumni can also apply and must then have graduated from the advanced level at the school no later than three years ago. You must have addressed or done something earlier for the climate and now have an idea of how to go to further actions with the help of the scholarship.

Apply no later than 2 May 2023
