Here is what you have to do in order to apply for a Danida fellowship. For information on who can apply, click here.
The procedures for Danida fellowship applications are stipulated in the Guidelines for Danida Fellowships
The fellowship form and the application form for residence permit (for studies longer 90 days) are available at the local Danish embassy or they can be downloaded under Forms.
The fellowship form is to be filled in by the applicant, the Danida programme/project, and the embassy desk officer in order to ensure that the training is within the framework of national sector plans for capacity building.
The grant of fellowship is binding. Many expenses, for instance study fees, are committed when a fellowship is granted. Cancellations are therefore not acceptable, as it is often too late to find another candidate for the place already paid for. Especially for the interdisciplinary courses, cancellations are most unfortunate as many qualified applicants may have been turned down already.
For fellows staying in Denmark less than 90 days with a fixed study period – please contact the relevant embassy/VFS centre to obtain Schengen Visa.
For fellows staying in Denmark more than 90 days, Danida Fellowship Centre will forward the application form for residence permit for students in due time prior to your departure for Denmark. Part two of the form is filled in by Danida Fellowship Centre. The fellow should fill in part one and hand it over to the relevant embassy/VFS centre.
The application procedure described above is applicable regardless of whether the training is financed by the central fellowship grant or by Danida programme/project grants.
