Get more from your study abroad experience

The Scan Design Foundation Fellowship Program is designed to foster Danish American relations by providing support through scholarships and cultural activities to undergraduate and graduate students in all majors who have been accepted to study abroad. The program goes beyond scholarship support, building fellowship amongst students from the US and students from Denmark. The program started at UW–Madison in Fall 2010 with the generous funding of the Scan Design Foundation by Inger and Jens Bruun.

The program at UW–Madison supports students participating (in either direction) in any one of many exchanges that  UW-Madison has with Danish universities, including the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark’s Technical University, and the University of Aarhus.

UW–Madison students on other programs in Demark (DIS, the International Internship Program, and independent research programs) are also eligible, as are Danish students coming to UW–Madison via the Visiting International Student Program.

NEW! Sustainability Focus

In recognition of education for sustainable development and environmental sustainability, the UW-Madison Scan Design Foundation Fellowship Program will be implementing new requirements for scholarship consideration and participation starting for students going abroad in Fall 2023.
