ED Marie Mønsted Celebrates 25 Years of Service to Fulbright Denmark

As we celebrate International Education Week this week we also honor Executive Director, Marie Mønsted’s 25 years of service to Fulbright Denmark.

Since 1995 Marie has worked to create the best opportunities for Danish and American students and researchers to study and do research with the best in their fields through academic educational exchanges.

Since the Fulbright Program began in Denmark in 1951 over 3.500 of “the best and the brightest” Danes and Americans have participated, working on mutual understanding and sparring with the world’s elite within their fields. Over the last 20 years, the number of annual scholarships awarded by Fulbright Denmark to Danes and Americans has varied between 25-50, and the advising numbers have varied from 4,000-8,000.

Each year Fulbright Denmark awards grants to top Master students, PhD-students and Scholars seeking academic challenges in the U.S.
