DIS - Study Abroad Scholarships
DIS offers several scholarship opportunities. The combined maximum scholarship for any individual student is $5,000 per semester (unless granted the Jacob Buksti Memorial Scholarship or the Anders Uhrskov Leadership Scholarship). DIS Scholarship Awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need (funding up to $5,000 per semester; $250-500 for summer sessions 1, 2, or 3; or up to $1,000 for summer session 4) Diversity Scholarship Awarded to support students from populations that are underrepresented in study abroad including those from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, and educational backgrounds including first-generation college students (funding up to $5,000 per semester and up to $250 to $1,000 per summer depending on course/program selection)
This merit-based award honors a beloved former DIS faculty member, Jacob Buksti, who passed away in 2016. Jacob built a strong legacy in modern Danish politics and made a deep impact on the hundreds of DIS students he taught from 2003 to 2016. Jacob served the Danish Social Democratic Party as a parliamentarian, party spokesperson, and Minister of Transportation during an impressive political career, and he was deeply devoted to sharing his work and passion with U.S. students at DIS. He loved being a politician and, even more than the theories and policy study that fueled his coursework, was passionate about the living, breathing game of European domestic and international politics. We offer this scholarship of up to $10,000 each semester to a deserving DIS Copenhagen or DIS Stockholm student who exhibits: A major in political science, international relations, government, public policy, economics, or a related field Passion about pursuing a career in politics An understanding of the work it takes to be actively engaged to advance yourself and your mission, interest in European/EU politics, and awareness that effective politics has many avenues A high GPA, strong personal essay, and recommendation from a professor or academic advisor Note: summer awards are not offered for this scholarship at this time.
Anders Uhrskov was the Director of DIS for 27 years and was dedicated to developing global leaders of tomorrow through education abroad. The Anders Uhrskov Leadership Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship established to award students who have demonstrated leadership on their college campuses at home and who are dedicated to enhancing and building upon their global leadership and critical thinking skills while spending a semester or summer abroad with DIS. Up to $10,000 will be awarded to one semester student and up to $5,000 to one summer student studying for six weeks or more.
