Scholarship Program

scholarship-CAAI

We are eager to attract more American students to study at Chalmers and we have been relying on support of members like you to help make this happen.

We welcome small as well as large donations, as any contribution makes a difference. As a huge thank you and appreciation for their generosity, we offer several benefits to our supporters. 

Our donation ladder outlines these benefits for each supporter category.

An individual who donates a full scholarship will be named “platinum” donor on the donor wall. It is also possible to start a local initiative and get a group of people together to raise funds for a full scholarship.

There is a great deal of flexibility when it comes to funding scholarships and we are open to working with donors/donor groups on a case-to-case basis to find a model that is beneficial to all parties.

Scholarships are awarded at a “U.S. Friends of Chalmers Scholarship award ceremony” at a location in the U.S. in May each year. The President, or other representative, of Chalmers as well as the Chairman of CAAI will be present at the ceremony – and all donors are encouraged to attend.
