Five years ago, Harold "Bud" Lawson founded the “Lawson Scholarship” under the Linköping University Jubilee Foundation, to encourage international exchange among the PhD students at IDA and increase international contacts at the department. The scholarship is awarded to PhD students in computer and information science or in electrical engineering. The intention is to encourage excellent performance, and provide an opportunity for extended international exchange early in the career of a researcher. IDA's departmental board decides on the recipients and the prize, based on the recommendation from the selection committee.
