The information below concerns general application. It is also possible to apply for scholarships in Biosciences from the separate Foundations listed below.

The “Lennart ‘Aktiestinsen’ Israelsson Foundation for Individual and Society"

– for research that benefits the education system. The Foundation annually awards funding for research that:

• generates scientifically-based knowledge of individual development.
• is based upon individual’s function and development in a lifelong perspective, as an integrated psychological, biological and social being in a changing world.
• considers how knowledge about individual development from this perspective is decisive in designing an education system that promotes society’s cultural, social, economic and technological progress, just as it respects each individual’s needs and circumstances.
