The government scholarship comprises two components and may be awarded as full or partial tuition fee waivers and/or grants to cover living costs. However, since scholarship administration is handled by individual higher education institutions, detailed information can be obtained directly from the chosen institution.
To be eligible for a scholarship, you must:
- Be a citizen of a country outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
- Be enrolled in a full-degree higher education program.
- Have been granted a time-limited residence permit in Denmark due to education.
The scholarships are administered by Danish institutions of higher education, each determining the recipients. For comprehensive details about the government scholarship, refer to the admission information of your preferred higher education institution. The institution can provide information on entry requirements, course descriptions, deadlines, and student services.
Deadlines vary depending on the university and study program of your choice. Generally, deadlines are around March-April for entry in September of the same year or around September-October for entry in February of the following year.
