At Jönköping University you have the opportunity to combine your studies with pursuing an elite-level sport. 

As an EVL (Elite Athlete Friendly) university, we give students recognised as (prospective or current) elite athletes by the Special Sports Federations the opportunity to combine elite sport with university studies.

Our study counsellors assist with our elite athletes’ academic planning, taking into account the athletes’ sporting commitments.

We understand and accommodate our elite athletes’ need for flexible study options. For instance, the athletes may negotiate their study schedule, including timetables and assessment.

We work closely together with the Swedish Sports Confederation and the Special Sports Federations.

How to apply

Complete the special application form found below and send the form to your special sports federation (SF). When you have received a signed certificate from your SF, submit the certificate to the university.

Elite Athlete Scholarship from the Swedish Sports Confederation and Svenska Spel
