  • Jury decision:  24th of March - Attn: Due to the prevailing circumstances with Covid-19, the assessment process regarding the Leapfrog scholarship will be slightly delayed. Therefore, the jury will not be able to inform you if you were awarded or not awarded the scholarship on March 24th as previously planned. You will instead be informed before April 9th.
  • Start of your Leapfrogs project: 1st of June

Practical information

The Leapfrogs support is given as a scholarship with a total sum of 30 000 SEK distributed over 3 months. This support is intended to give you the opportunity to work full time with development of your business idea and can hence be used as your livelihood support during the project time. The working time for your project is 1st of June - 31st of August.

The project starts with a kick-off meeting for all selected Leapfrogs projects. Throughout the Leapfrogs project time, workshops will be organised with the purpose of providing skills which can be of use for your work with your Leapfrogs project. It is also an opportunity to meet and interact with the other students participating in Leapfrogs. 

If you are several people applying for the same project – apply with one application for each person. Since the cheque is awarded to an individual we will make an assessment accordingly. However, since we also want to support as many projects as possible we will generally award one cheque per project. In rare cases we will award a maximum of two cheques per project.
