Sustainability Focus

Fun with a purpose

The Scan Design Foundation Fellowship Program recognizes the importance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have on our shared future.

To better align with these goals, we are adding an environmental sustainability-focus to our program activities. This focus will allow us to gain deeper knowledge and appreciation for how values, attitudes, and behaviors contribute to building sustainable societies. It will further enhance our objective of building Danish American relations.

Starting in Fall 2023, Danish program participants and UW-Madison scholarship students (returning to campus in Spring 2024) must agree to participate in certain educational and environmental sustainability-focused activities in conjunction with the UW Office of Sustainability.

Additionally, Danish and UW-Madison semester-long scholarship applicants will need to demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability through coursework, community involvement, hobbies, and/or experience.
