For the academic year 2022- 2023 the Society is inviting applications from students undertaking post-graduate courses.


The scholarships are open to either:

Danish Nationals
with a first degree from a Danish  university/higher education institution (HEI) who are undertaking postgraduate studies/research at a university/HEI in the United Kingdom


British Nationals
with a first degree from a university/HEI in the United Kingdom who are undertaking postgraduate studies/research at a university/HEI in Denmark.

Applicants should either have embarked on postgraduate courses / research leading to a higher degree, or be assured of being able to do so in the academic year indicated above. Please observe the closing date of 1st March 2022 for the submission of applications even though the final confirmation of a place is pending or expected shortly after that date.

For the William Charnley Anglo-Danish Scholarship only, the closing date is 30 June 2022. Selection for this award will be carried out by Hughes Hall, Cambridge.

There are no restrictions as to the subject of study other than as specified for the Ove Arup Foundation Award and the William Charnley Anglo-Danish Scholarship

Scholarships are intended to be only a supplement to students’ other funding and will be paid out in two instalments from the beginning of the academic year indicated or such other date as may be approved. The value is currently £2500 per grant. All applicants are required to submit a budget for their study period and two signed letters of recommendation from persons of academic or professional standing.

Each successful applicant will be requested to accept the award confirming that you meet the prerequisite requirements, that a lack of funding will not be a hindrance for the fulfilment of your studies and that you will submit a short report to the Anglo-Danish Society at the end of the academic year for which the award was given. Also, you will be asked to grant us permission to publicise your award.


Application form can be downloaded or requested by e-mail to Anglo-Danish Society.  Completed applications are to be submitted by e-mail from 1st January 2022 onwards.  Closing date for the return of completed applications is 1st March 2022, except the William Charnley Anglo-Danish Scholarship which is 30 June 2022.

Academic and residential arrangements are the responsibility of the student. Any queries should be addressed directly to the University/College concerned.
