Scholarship

CBS welcomes scholarship applications from graduate applicants, who come from countries outside of EU/EEA and need a student residence permit to study at CBS, regardless of gender, age, nationality and religion - we are interested in your motivation and your academic background.

Facts:

Each scholarship consists of a tuition fee waiver and a monthly scholarship of DKK 5,500 to cover living costs in Denmark (the equivalent of SU, the State Educational Grant given to Danish students). The grant is paid out in advance every month and has a maximum duration of 22 months, starting 1 September the year you are accepted. The grant is taxable in Denmark according to the rules and regulations governing income from grants and tax exemption for developing countries.

In 2012 CBS offered 25 scholarships.

Who:

You may be considered for a scholarship if you:

  • are a non-EU/EEA citizen
  • need a student residence permit to study at CBS
  • apply online at Admission Flow by 1 February, 12 noon
  • upload documentation and a motivational essay by 1 February, 12 noon

Students who receive a CBS scholarship may not receive a scholarship from their home country and are not entitled to SU (Danish State Educational Grant) or any other type of public support in Denmark.

To keep receiving the scholarship, recipients must be active students throughout the prescribed duration of their studies at CBS.

Procedure:

If you wish to be considered for a scholarship, you must apply for admission no later than 1 February 12 noon - no matter if you are a Group A or a Group B applicant – at Admission Flow.

When you apply for admission you must indicate that you wish to be considered for a scholarship and you are to upload a motivational essay. A selection committee will make a recommendation to the CBS President, who will make the final decision as to which applicants will be offered a scholarship.

Applicants who are offered a scholarship will be notified of this by 1 March at the latest via Admission Flow. If you are offered a scholarship, you have until 15 March 12 noon to accept the scholarship.
