Frands Christian Frantsen’s Scholarship

The Frands Christian Frantsen’s Scholarship will in May 2023 award scholarships and travel grants.

The Frands Christian Frantsens Legat Foundation will award scholarships and travel grants in May 2023. However, since the foundation has limited funds for distribution in 2023, these will primarily be prioritized for Bachelor students in portions of typically between DKK 5,000 and 10,000. Master's and PhD students are still welcome to apply.

The overall purpose of the fund is to award scholarships and bursaries to academically excellent students, incl. PhD students, within the research areas of agriculture and wildlife biology. Students should be enrolled at the Faculty of Technical Sciences or Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.

Students in research fields relevant to Danish agriculture, food and wildlife biology (birds and mammals) can apply for the above-mentioned scholarships and travel bursaries:

For students, PhD students included, for either:

  • Research stays in Danish or foreign research environments
  • The use of special apparatuses or cost-intensive analyses
  • Field work or
  • Popular science promotion of research in relation to Danish agriculture, food and wildlife biology

Please note that general living expenses for paid PhD students are not supported.

The reception of a scholarship or travel bursary must not lead to prolongation of one’s studies, and hence the student must plan the use of the given scholarship as a part of her/his project process.

The board of trustees will decide on the number and sizes of the donations based on the incoming applications.
