There are websites (most in Danish) that have searchable databases of grants that you can search for free. It is worth using these, rather than the ones, where you have to pay – they are seldom worth the cost.
If you are an international student, we also recommend that you apply for grants from your home country.
The following sites have information about grants
ITU Students have previously received grants from the following foundations
The IT University does not offer any grants but you can apply to the Travel Pool for funds to cover travel expenses.
Make a realistic budget if you want to apply for a grant
Making a realistic budget enhances your chances of getting funding from various grants. A good starting point is taking the following expenses and incomes into account:
- Tuition fee
- Travel expenses to and from the destination
- Local transport while you are there
- Relevant social/cultural experiences
It is okay to budget some money on leisure. If you are going to Australia, a trip to see Ayers Rock might be incorporated in your budget, which shows that you want to get a full experience.
However, going pub-crawling with fellow students might best be left out of the budget.
- State Scholarship for study abroad
- Funding from the IT University Travel Pool
- Funding from grants
- Erasmus scholarship and any savings.
It is a good idea to show that you are willing to put money on the table, and your budget needs to be realistic, feasible and sensible.
You need to show that you are able to go through with the plan so that the grants administrators are not nervous about investing money in a lost project.
