ABB is offering a scholarship to students at Mälardalen University (MDH). Every year, during a five-year period, a degree project or an idea related to robotics, and with a focus on technology and innovation, will be rewarded with ABB’s Robotics Scholarship worth 25 000 kronor per year. The scholarship is not linked to a specific programme and can be applied for by all MDH students, regardless of their specializations.

Each year MDH nominates an international student as Global Swede. The Global Swede will function as a link between Sweden and his or her home country and becomes a valuable representative for both MDH and Sweden. An official diploma ceremony hosted by representatives from the Swedish Government is held in Stockholm in May.
