Grants when going abroad


All PhD students are fully funded when enrolled. However, there are a great number of opportunities to obtain additional financial support when you want to go abroad. In the below list you can find an overview of grants PhD students previously have applied for and received. Many of the relevant grants only have information available in Danish. Your research group coordinator can help with translation.

The website fundraising.how has written a few articles that might be helpful when applying for funding:
