Therefore you are invited to apply for fully funded Denmark scholarships at University of Copenhagen for the class of 2023-2024.

This scholarship has very few number of seats for applicants who wish to study at the University of Copenhagen. Danish Government scholarships are for BS/MA/MSc/PhD degree programs. I also want to mention that Danish Government scholarships are mostly highly competitive and which are awarded to students who have an exceptional academic background and this is because the Denmark Government scholarships and University of Copenhagen scholarships are totally Merit based.
