Madison to Denmark


Scan Design fellows receive $8,000 per semester and $500 per week for summer programs or shorter term programs (e.g. research, internships) in the academic year.  You may receive up to 2 academic terms of support and additional support is available to students with documented financial need.

Additional funds are also available if you enroll in an extracurricular Danish language course (including the pre-semester intensive courses offered by many Danish universities).


UW-Madison students committed to environmental sustainability who have applied to study in Denmark under any of the university’s study abroad or visiting scholar programs are eligible and encouraged to apply for Scan Design scholarships.

Please note that it is important to apply for your passport and visa early to ensure that you will have them in time for your program start. Save on the cost of applying for these documents by having your free passport photos printed from International Academic Programs!

Upon returning from Denmark, SDF UW-Madison fellows are required to give back to the program and participate in organized environmental sustainability events.

Giving back can be done in a number of ways, with the most impactful being the warm reception and acclimation of SDF Danish students at UW-Madison.  SDF Alumni are encouraged to partake in organized activities or initiate personal efforts to connect with Danish students in Madison, alongside their active participation in environmental sustainability events.

Fellows are also asked to share their experiences with others through blog posts, photographs, and classroom or student org presentations, to encourage other Badgers to study in Denmark.
