Student Scholarships

We offer students the possibility to apply for scholarships with us in order to help make possible things that would not have otherwise been so. This could, for example, be to help towards costs connected with the completion of a bachelor or masters’ degree thesis (for instance, the purchasing of materials) or presenting their thesis at a conference if successfully chosen to do so. We do not offer this support to those who have access to financial support from other sources. For example, if there is an external party that is interested in a student’s thesis who can help economically or if the student has an employer within the field of fire safety who can pay for travel to a conference.

Applications for student scholarships are made via e-mail to and must contain the following:

  • Title of the project.
  • A short description of the project.
  • Description and motivation regarding the costs you are applying for a scholarship for.
  • Amount you are looking for.
  • Personal information for everyone included in the application.
  • Account information for payment.
  • Consent that we handle your personal information.
  • Declaration that you have no other options for solving the financing (eg via employer or external stakeholder, etc.)
