Purpose

Scholarships are available for master's and PhD students. PhD students are required to conduct full-time research at a Danish university or a similar institution of higher education in Denmark. Master’s students are required to take on a course load of 30 ECTS per semester.

Bachelor's degree students wishing to study Danish language and literature can also apply if they have studied the Danish language for two years. Bachelor's degree students are also required a course load of 30 ECTS per semester.

In order to encourage the establishment and development of direct contacts and agreements between institutions in Denmark and Egypt, priority will be given to applicants who are affiliated with such projects.
