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. 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. Most of the relevant grants only have information available in Danish. Ask your research group coordinator to help with translations. Also notice that for some scholarships, the application must come from the supervisor or the university.
