Ingvar Kamprad Scholarship

The Master’s programme in Industrial Design focuses on three themes: Living and Behaviour, Form and Technology, or Man and Nature. The programme consists of individual industrial design projects, workshops and additional theoretical courses. You will participate in and contribute to the creation of knowledge within the field of design. By organizing exhibitions, seminars and workshops you will communicate your work and participate in the public debate. The School of Industrial Design offers you a creative environment with excellent workshop facilities. As part of a full-scale university, we can offer great opportunities for a multidisciplinary approach through cooperation with other faculties.

The curriculum consist of individual industrial design projects and mandatory common academics, which are drawn in from specialised faculties of Lund University. The industrial design projects are chosen from a given thematic repertoire, by modular combination from a selection within the thematic repertoire or by proposition of an individual theme within the framework of the thematic repertoire, monitored in coordination with an elected team of supervisors.

Students will become authorities in their chosen subject, whether in their conceptually creative, strategic or technical capacity. Above all, the Master’s programme in Industrial Design encourages the in-depth debate and deliberation of the discipline.

Living expenses

The aim of the scholarship is to support two students enrolled in the Master's degree programme in Industrial Design. The financial support is aimed for students that have difficulties to afford the living costs in Sweden. The scholarship is SEK 100 000 per year (about EUR 10 000), to cover the cost of living and accommodation for ten months, from August to May, during the two years of study.  
The selection will be from the motivation.

Tuition fee

When the Swedish government in 2011 decided to apply tuition fees for non-EU/EEA-students, the Stichting IKEA Foundation established two new scholarships. Each scholarship is SEK 210 000 per year for two years, in order to cover the tuition fees. 
The selection will be from the portfolio.

The tuition fees will be paid directly to the University.
