Regarding Covid-19 for applicants who were granted a scholarship in the first application round 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Denmark and the consequent closure of the Danish borders and higher education institutions, the Ministry of Higher Education and Science has unfortunately been compelled to cancel all Danish Language Summer Courses. 
The Ministry has given the course providers the choice either to offer the course online or to cancel the course, if they do not have the possibility to offer the course online. If you have received a scholarship for a Summer Language Course in 2020, your course provider will contact you. The scholarship you have been granted this year unfortunately cannot be exchanged for a place in next year's course.
