The Anglo-Danish society administers together with the Ove Arup Foundation a special scholarship.

In addition it offers the successful applicant contact with the Ove Arup Foundation and the Foundation’s commitment to support and publicise any publication made as a result of the scholarship.

It carries with it the same conditions as our non- subject specific Anglo-Danish Society awards (see general Anglo-Danish Society announcement for full details), including:

1)    Applicants must be Danish postgraduates for scholarships tenable at UK universities or appropriate Higher Education Institution (HEI) or British postgraduates for scholarships tenable at Danish Universities or appropriate HEI.

2)    The scholarship is intended to supplement students’ other funding and will be paid in three instalments over the academic year 2020/2021.

3)    The successful applicant will be requested to give permission for the Society and the Ove Arup Foundation to publicise the award and will also be asked to submit a short report on the academic work undertaken during the period of study.
