Danish Government Scholarships 2012

The Danish Government Scholarships under the Cultural Agreements

The Danish Government Scholarships under the Cultural Agreements are aimed at highly qualified exchange students and young researchers who wish to immerse themselves in studies of the Danish language and culture or other fields of study related to Denmark, such as design, architecture, environmental studies, and other related fields.

These Danish Government Scholarships are offered to students from a number of European countries and students from Russia, China, Japan, Israel and Egypt. The Cultural Agreements both comprise scholarships for long-term study periods and summer languages courses to foreign students. The Scholarships under the Cultural Agreements for the study year 2012-13 can be applied for from November 2011 and onwards until February 28th 2012

Danish government scholarships for highly qualified non-EU/EEA students

Danish higher education institutions receive a limited number of government scholarships each year to fund highly qualified full-degree students from non-EU/EEA countries and Switzerland.

In order to be eligible for a scholarship you must be:
  • a citizen of a country outside the EU, the European Economic Area or Switzerland
  • enrolled in a full degree higher education programme
  • granted a time-limited residence permit in Denmark due to education
You are not eligible for a Danish government scholarship if you are:
  • seeking admission to a university level institution of arts, design and architecture
  • have a legal claim to the rights of Danish citizens
  • have been granted a residence permit at the time of admission by the Danish Aliens Consolidations Act §9c, subsection 1, as the child of a foreign citizen who has been granted a residence permit in accordance with the Danish Aliens Consolidations Act §9a, and who is a citizen of a country that is not acceded to the EU or covered by the EEA agreement
  • a student who is eligible for a grant in accordance with Danish Law regarding the State Education Fund
The scholarships are administered by the Danish higher education institutions, each of which decides which students will receive a scholarship. For further information about the government scholarship, please consult the admission details of the higher education institution of your choice.

Please note: The government scholarship consists of two parts and can be given as full or partial tuition fee waivers and/or grants towards covering your living costs. However, as the scholarships are administered by the individual higher education institution, you should ask for further details at the institution of your choice.
