Fulbright Grants for Americans to Denmark

Fulbright Denmark has initiated direct cooperation with leaders from the corporate and academic worlds to focus on three areas:

Sustainability, Space, and Life Sciences.

Fulbright Denmark continues to support studies and research within all fields where academic excellence is present.

American students and scholars seeking to go to Greenland or the Faroe Islands must apply through Fulbright Denmark.

The Fulbright Program is just as relevant as it ever was because of the exchange of ideas that it enables.
