In 2005, the ScanDesign Foundation by Inger and Jens Bruun, based in Seattle, Washington, established a study abroad fellowship program at the University of Washington. The program is designed to foster Danish-American relations by providing generous financial support to undergraduate and graduate students who have been accepted to study abroad in Denmark for a semester, a summer, or a full academic year through any of UW-Seattle's Danish study abroad exchange programs, at the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, Aalborg University, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and the University of Aarhus, and the affliated study abroad program with the Danish Institute of Study Abroad (DIS). Summer scholarships are also available for summer travel study (exchange or independent study options). The program also supports Danish students attending UW-Seattle via one of these exchange agreements. Fellowships are intended to provide financial support to students from all academic fields of study.
We encourage you to explore this site to learn more about UW Danish Exchange programs and the process for applying for Scan|Design Fellowship Funding. Fellowships are awarded in Winter Quarter for the following summer and academic year. They typically provide approximately between $7500 - $9000 in funding per fall/spring semester of exchange. Summer scholars are eligible for $2500 in funding. Fellows are eligible for a maximum of two semesters of funding.
