Apply for scholarships and grants within agriculture and wildlife biology research

Fonden Frands Christian Frantsen’s Scholarship will give scholarships and travel grants, typically of an amount of 15,000 - 30,000 DKK.

The overall purpose of the fund is to give scholarships and grants to academically excellent students, incl. PhD students, within the research areas of agriculture and wildlife biology who are enrolled at the Faculty of Science and Technology, 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 grants:

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

The reception of a scholarship or travel grant 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.
