The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship
There are two. The first one is a wedding gift from the University of Copenhagen to the Tasmanian-born Princess Mary, when she married Prince Frederik. Established in 2004 and commencing 2005.
The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship is established for a five-year period and is to be awarded to students from the University of Copenhagen’s Australian partner institutions.
Two scholarships of DKK 10,000 (app. A$2,200) will be available each calendar year commencing in 2005.
Available to current undergraduate students who are studying in: Humanities, Social Science, Science (Chemistry, Biochemistry, Earth Science, Plant Science and Zoology) or Economics (applicants should refer to the list of available courses taught in English at the University of Copenhagen below). Applicants should demonstrate a particular interest in studying at the University of Copenhagen.
The University of Copenhagen will provide DKK 10,000 (approx A$2,200) towards living expenses. In addition, if one of the successful applicants is from the University of Tasmania, UTAS will provide a further $3,000 towards expenses including airfare. In the event that the nominated University of Tasmania student is not successful but still wishes to travel on student exchange to the University of Copenhagen, UTAS will still provide $3,000 to help meet costs.
