Apply for financial support for your studies at the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University

Deadline for applications: 4 May 2021


In 1995, Associate Professor Ragna Lorentzen mag.art. bequeathed her estate to a foundation established as the Associate Professor Ragna Lorentzen Foundation. The foundation is registered at the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University.

The foundation awards study grants to Icelandic students at the Danish School of Education. Grants may be awarded to Faroese, Greenlandic and other international applicants studying at the Danish School of Education if the foundation does not receive a sufficient number of qualified applications from Icelandic students.

Grant recipients must have limited financial resources. Each application is for a period of up to one year and maximum 75,000 DKK. It is possible to reapply for a subsequent period if the applicant is still enrolled at the Danish School of Education.

Grants are primarily awarded to students applying to or enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s degree programme (BSc, MA or MSc) at the Danish School of Education, including exchange students. However, PhD students, including visiting PhD students, at the School are also invited to apply for financial support.

Applicants must complete/provide the following:

  • Application form (PDF or Word)
  • Budget form – applicants currently living outside Denmark (PDF or Excel) or Budget form – applicants living in Denmark (PDF or Excel)
  • A copy of your most recent tax assessment/tax return
  • A copy of your most recent preliminary income assessment (Forskudsopgørelse) – only applicants already living in Denmark

Study grants are conditional on the recipient being enrolled/accepted and active as a student/visiting PhD student at the Danish School of Education throughout the period for which the grant is awarded

Applications, including all relevant appendices, should be sent to: Sekretariatet, att. Associate Professor Ragna Lorentzen Foundation, Danish School of Education, Aarhus University, Tuborgvej 164, DK-2400 Copenhagen NV, DENMARK, or via email: RL.Legat@edu.au.dk. If you plan to submit an application via email, please forward your cell no. to RL.Legat@edu.au.dk in order for the secretary to set up a secure email solution.
