Minor Field Studies
for bachelor's and master's students
If you are interested in global development issues, you have the opportunity to conduct a minor field study in a developing country.
Through an MFS scholarship, you can collect material for your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree project onsite in a developing country. For a period of at least eight weeks, you can study issues that are relevant to the economic, social or political knowledge development of the country you visit.
The MFS scholarship, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), is a good preparation for those who want to work in global environments and organisations. It is also an opportunity to gain experience and understanding of the challenges that may exist in developing countries.
MFS students are each awarded a scholarship of SEK 27 000 to cover part of the expenses during their stay abroad.
In order to be considered eligible for the MFS scholarship, you should:
- Be a Swedish citizen OR a citizen of another Nordic country who has been living in Sweden on a permanent basis for at least one year OR an international citizen who has been granted Permanent Right of Residence (PUT)* in Sweden.
- Be a Bachelor's or Master's student enrolled at Lund University who needs to collect data for their degree project.
- Be proficient in English and understand Swedish.
- Have an active interest in international affairs.
