Can I get a grant?
Only a few Danish folk high schools awards grants to their students for the purpose of co-sponsoring the weekly costs of a course
To find information about co-sponsoring programmes, please go to the website of the school that you are interested in. They will be able to tell you under which conditions the co-sponsorships are awarded, if any.
Furthermore, the Danish Government (The Danish Agency for Universities and Internationalisation) has laid down a grant scheme for students from the recent EU member states in order for them to attend a folk high school in Denmark.
Eligible for this grant are students who are 17½ years old (16½ in the three youth folk high schools) and are citizens of and has permanent residence permits in one of the following EU member states: Bulgaria, Cyprus, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia or Slovenia.
The course must have a minimum duration of 12 weeks.
The grant will cover part of the tuition fee, which includes board and lodging (up to DKK 600 per week).
The chools normally charge an additional fee, which may vary according to the specific courses. Applications for grants should be made by the Danish folk high schools on behalf of the students, and the grant will be paid to the school.
This means that you must contact the school and agree on admission well before the application deadline of The Danish Agency for Universities and Internationalisation (preferably a couple of months).
You will have to finance your travel expenses as well as any additional living costs yourself.
Please be advised, that if a student leaves before the course has ended, the grant will be cancelled and all costs are to be paid by the student.
Please go to http://en.iu.dk/grants-and-scholarships/folk-high-school-grants to find all the information you need about this grant.
This special grant scheme will cease to exist as per 31.12.2012.
