Applications are open for the 2021 Danish State Scholarships- Fully Funded. The scholarship offered by Aarhus University is open to non-EU/EEA students and the deadline is 15th September 2021.
Aarhus University offers a limited number of scholarships to the most talented applicants from outside Europe. Scholarships can only be awarded to applicants who are liable to pay tuition fees. Aarhus University offers a limited number of Danish state scholarships for non-EU students. Our scholarships are financed by the Danish state. Aarhus University does not have its own scholarship funds but relies solely on funding from the Danish state for this purpose.
The content of a scholarship varies. In some cases, the scholarship is a full or partial tuition waiver. In other cases, the tuition waiver includes a monthly grant towards living expenses, typically but not always for the duration of your Master’s degree program.
Some faculties only offer tuition waivers. In this case, the faculty may be able to offer other relevant services to its tuition waiver recipients, e.g. assistance in searching for a relevant student job.
Please note that if you are offered a tuition waiver only, it is a requirement for obtaining a student residence permit that you have sufficient funds to be able to support yourself financially during your stay in Denmark.
When you apply for admission, your application will automatically be assessed with a view to a possible scholarship along with our academic assessment of your qualifications. You should not upload any additional documentation to your application for admission.
The scholarship is connected very specifically to your Master’s degree program and cannot be transferred to another degree program at AU.
In selecting 2021 Danish State Scholarships recipients among the academically qualified applicants, priority will be given to applicants with excellent academic qualifications.
Due to the limited number of scholarships available, we are not able to able to offer a scholarship to all highly qualified applicants, unfortunately.
Typically, only one or two scholarships are offered on each of our Master’s degree programs. At some faculties, the strategic focus may be placed on selected degree programs or applicants from specific countries.
If you are selected for a scholarship, you will receive a scholarship offer along with your letter of admission in the application system. If you are not selected for a scholarship, you will receive a tuition fee notification instead.
