Through KTH Opportunities Fund, students and young researchers at KTH have been given the opportunity to implement projects and initiatives.
Thanks to alumni and friends of KTH—109 students and young researchers have received funding for student fees or projects such as robotic surgery research, the building of a wind turbine in Tanzania and the completion of an internship at NASA.
During 2022/2023 the opportunity to support students and young researchers at KTH via the KTH Opportunities Fund will be phased out. As an alum you can continue to support students at KTH via other types of alumni engagement such as the
KTH Alumni Mentor Program
, guest lectures and degree projects.
Celebrating a birthday or honoring a memory by supporting KTH, can be a way to truly define the unique connection that alumni share. If this is a form of support that appeals to you, please reach out to

Functional testing for surgical robot hands
"Promising results and increased use of robotics in surgery, gives reason to expect that surgical robots can increase surgeons' ability to execute surgical procedures. Collaborative robots can be programmed to perform repetitive surgical tasks that require high precision and speed. Thanks to KTH Opportunities Fund we could perform functional testing, which generated a solid proof-of-concept, and greatly improved the impact of my master’s thesis work."
Analysis of grass and soil connected to egg-laying sites of malaria mosqitoes
"Thanks to the support from KTH Opportunities Fund I have, together with Bachelor- and thesis students, had the opportunity to develop and evaluate an extraction method for plants who's precense have shown to be influential on the chosen egg-laying sites of malaria vector Anopheles gambiae."
"KTH Opportunities Fund gave us much more than some financial support. They believed in us, in our project, before anyone else did. Their trust gave us more confidence to pursue our endeavor and it was with their backing that we were able to secure all the funding needed. Thank you for helping us make this workshop for women PhD students a reality!"
