Danish Government Long-Term Scholarships 2020/2021 for Master’s & PhD Study for international students to study in Denmark (Deadline:March 2, 2020)

By juju

The Danish Government Scholarships under the Cultural Agreements are aimed at highly qualified exchange students wishing to immerse themselves in studies of the Danish language and culture or other fields of study related to Denmark.
Long-term scholarships of 5-12 months are offered to exchange students from higher education institutions in the following countries:

Please note that scholarships are only offered for exchanges (not full-degree studies), and only to students enrolled in full-degree studies at higher education institutions in the countries listed above. Applications from candidates affiliated with higher education institutions in countries other than those listed will not be taken into consideration.

Scholarships are only available to master’s and PhD level students. However, bachelor’s degree students wishing to study Danish language and literature can also apply if they have studied the Danish language for two years.

PhD students must likewise be employed at, or affiliated with, higher education institutions in the above-mentioned countries.

Please note that applicants at the time of application must be enrolled in, or able to document a future enrollment in, full-degree programmes in the countries mentioned above.

Danish institutions offering long-term scholarships

It is only possible to apply for a scholarship for studies at higher education institutions who offer long-term scholarships. Please see the list below.

General information

Scholarship period

Scholarships are tenable during the academic year. The autumn term begins on September 1st, the spring term on February 1st.

With respect to residence permits and/or visa, we recommend that accepted applicants contact the Danish diplomatic representation in their home country well in advance of their entry into Denmark.

Scholarship amount

Scholarships include free tuition and a monthly stipend of DKK 6,500.

Danish Government Scholarships can be used as a contribution to cover travel, visa fees, accommodation, food, and other living expenses. The scholarships are for one person only. Additional amounts for accompanying family members are not available.

Please note that living expenses in Denmark are generally high, and that housing, especially in the larger cities, is often very expensive. The scholarship will not most likely not cover all expenses.

Some Danish higher education institutions may choose to charge a fee in conjunction with PhD courses.

Participants may be liable to pay tax on their scholarship in the Kingdom of Denmark. Therefore, scholarship recipients should contact the local tax authorities for an individual assessment. In the event that the Danish tax authorities decide that a scholarship is taxable, the Agency for Science and Higher Education has no power to overturn the decision.

Language of instruction

Danish is the normal language of instruction at institutions of higher education in Denmark, but more and more institutions offer courses in English or in another foreign language or have special arrangements for non-Danish students.

Further information on courses in other languages must be obtained directly from the participating Danish institutions of higher education.
