Maximum permissible earnings (Fribeløb)

Increasing maximum permissible earnings

In some instances, you can get an increase in your maximum permissible earnings. This applies if you:

  • are receiving certain grants, compensation or scholarships
  • are receiving SU that is dependent on your parents’ income, and your parents have a high income
  • are doing military service abroad
  • are receiving an SU PhD fellowship

Please note that travel grants for study abroad are as a rule tax-exempted, but if you are in doubt please contact the scholarship administrator or the Danish tax authority SKAT.
