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.
In order to be eligible for a scholarship you must be:
- a citizen of a country outside the EU and the European Economic Area
- enrolled in a full degree higher education programme
- granted a time-limited residence permit in Denmark due to education
The scholarships are administered by the higher education institutions, who individually decide which students are selected to receive a scholarship.
For further information about the governement scholarship, please consult your chosen higher education institution’s admission details.
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 institution, you should enquire about further details at the higher education institution of your choice.
