    The Long-Term Scholarships

    The Danish Government Scholarships under the Cultural Agreements are aimed at highly qualified exchange students and young research scientists wishing to immerse themselves in studies of the Danish language and culture or other fields of study related to Denmark.
    Scholarships are offered to exchange students and young research scientists from higher education institutions in the following countries:
    Non-European countries: China, Japan, Israel, Egypt and Russia
    Scholarships are only available to master’s and PhD-level students and young research scientists. However, bachelor's degree students wishing to study Danish language and literature can also apply if they have studied the Danish language for two years.
    Information on country-specific terms and conditions can be found on the following pages:

    Scholarships are available for researchers in order to enable them to study or carry out research at a Danish university or a similar institution of higher education in Denmark.
    In order to encourage the establishment and development of direct contacts and agreements between institutions in Denmark and Non-EU countries, priority will be given to applicants affiliated with such projects.
    Priority will also be given to applicants who want to study the language and culture of Denmark.
    In order to come into consideration for a scholarship, applicants must have arranged an appropriate study programme. Applications should include a detailed description of the intended project of studies/research in Denmark.
    Please note you are ineligible for a scholarship if:
    • You are already enrolled or planning to enroll in a full degree, joint degree, or double degree programme in Denmark. Full, joint, and double degree students are not considered exchange students and are ineligible for scholarships.
    • You are not currently enrolled in, or conducting research at, an institution of higher education in your home country.
    • You intend to pursue studies at a bachelor’s level during your stay in Denmark in fields other than Danish language and literature.
    • You plan to conduct studies or research on a part-time, rather than a full-time, basis.
