The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has initiated a Master scholarship programme, as a supplement to the existing fellowship programme. The aim is to provide talented students from South partner universities with the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree from a Danish university in order to contribute to the development of their countries.
The scholarship programme is part of the ‘Building Stronger Universities’ (BSU) initiative supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark. The administrative aspects of the scholarship are taken care of by DFC.
The following universities are part of the programme:
- Ghana: University of Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology
- Tanzania: Sokoine University of Agriculture, Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College, and State University of Zanzibar
- Uganda: Gulu University
- Nepal: Kathmandu University
The Master scholarship programme under the BSU will come to an end by the end of August 2017. You find a review of the Master Scholarship Programme here.
