All PhD students are fully funded when enrolled. However, it is possible to apply for extra funding from external organizations or companies. Talk to your supervisor or the PhD committee if you consider applying, for example for extra travel funding. Also notice that for some scholarships, the application must come from the supervisor or the university.

Grants when going abroad

There are a great number of opportunities to obtain additional financial support when you want to go abroad. The below listed are some - if you know of other relevant grants please let Sofia Rasmussen know, so they can be added to the list. 

If you need assistance in getting together the right documentation, reading the proposals/application forms or perhaps just need to identify what foundation you may be eligible to apply to, research coordinator Trine Ji Holmgaard Jensen might be able to help you. Mail her or drop by her office in Nygaard 316.
