Lund University Scholarship Foundation (LUSS) aims to assist the University in its work to attract the most talented students in order to create the global classroom in Lund. The return on investment from LUSS forms an important source of scholarships for future generations of students. LUSS now wants to draw the attention of alumni to a unique opportunity. Through a donation of SEK 350,000, you will be offered membership in the 350 Club, a group through which you will be invited to a large number of events, enabling you to meet others who share your interest in academia and society. 

You will discuss challenges and visions with leading researchers and hear their perspectives on your own questions. Such meetings include the 350 Club’s spring and autumn salons.
Example themes from previous salons: The energy revolution transforming our society; Crucial legal issues at the confluence of ethics, technology and human rights; Currencies of the future beyond the cashless society.

This autumn’s salon will be held in the middle of October and will discuss the positive effects of music on our health and well-being. If you would like to know more, or if you wish to become a member, contact Pernilla Ohlson, email:
