Scan Design Foundation Fellowship Program at UW

Welcome to the Scan Design Foundation Fellowship Program at the University of Washington.

The Scan Design Foundation provides generous, need-based fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students from all academic fields of study who have been accepted to study abroad in Denmark through any program approved by UW Study Abroad, including exchanges with the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, Aarhus University, Aarhus School of Architecture, and the affiliated partner program with the Danish Institute of Study Abroad (DIS). Funding is available through all quarters throughout the year, including direct enrollment through Danish institutions and UW’s Fieldwork, Research, and Independent Learning Abroad (FRILA).

We encourage you to explore this site to learn more about Danish Exchange programs through UW Study Abroad and the process of applying for Scan Design Foundation Fellowship funding. Applications for summer, autumn, and full-year exchanges are due in late January through the UW Study abroad application portal. Funding ranges between $1000-$16,000 per semester, based on financial data provided in the student’s FAFSA or WASFA. Fellows are eligible for a maximum of two semesters of funding. Check out the Fellowship FAQ for more information.
