Prize for the best Master's theses 2020

News: Jul 02, 2020

The graduation ceremony for the students in the Master's programmes had to be canceled this year due to the corona pandemic. However, as usual, the best papers from each of the nine Master’s programmes could be selected and awarded with the "The Malmsten Award".

Ever since the start of the School’s English Master’s programmes in 1997, they have been supported by the Richard C. Malmsten Memorial Foundation, among other things through "The Malmsten Award for Best Thesis", which is awarded the best thesis in each program. The students receive the honor and a scholarship of SEK 10,000 each.
