The scholarships that are awarded are:
- Research preparatory scholarship
- Postdoctoral fellowship
- Transfer scholarship
A scholarship holder is not employed and is therefore not subject to any collective agreement. For example, a scholarship holder is not entitled to holiday, daily allowances during business travels or health and fitness care allowance
A scholarship is tax-free and therefore does not allow any sickness and parental benefits nor any pension rights.
A scholarship is not covered by the occupational injury insurance but, on the other hand, by the Work Environment Act. LiU has a responsibility for the working environment, but is not expected to carry out employee appraisals. It is, however, important that the fellow has a social affiliation at the working place. An international fellow is covered by the Insurance for Foreign Visitors, but because of the above all fellows should consider their insurance coverage.
