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 program
- 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.
