Please note that the number of scholarships/tuition waivers is usually very limited.
Only very highly qualified applicants can be nominated for a tuition waiver/scholarship, but unfortunately, not all very highly qualified students can be nominated for a scholarship/tuition waiver due to the limited number of scholarships available.
Applicants to Bachelor's degree programmes are not eligible for tuition waivers/scholarships.
Aarhus University offers four scholarships in order to give highly talented students the opportunity to conduct their Master’s studies at Aarhus University from 1 February 2017.
Students from the Republic of Korea, India, United States, Brazil, Japan and China are eligible for application.
The selected students will receive a full tuition waiver including a monthly scholarship of DKK 8,981 (app. EUR 1200) towards living expenses.
The scholarships will give candidates the opportunity to complete a two-year Master’s degree programme at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Aarhus University. The four successful students will be linked to specific FUTURE CROPPING activities and will be expected to do an internship or a research project with a company within the FUTURE CROPPING programme. The students will each be assigned a mentor at their department.

About FUTURE CROPPING
Aarhus University is part of the partnership FUTURE CROPPING, which is supported by Denmark’s Innovation Foundation. During the coming five years, FUTURE CROPPING will help develop the high quality, sustainable plant production of tomorrow. One of the most important challenges for farming is to increase plant production per hectare, while at the same time reducing the impact on the environment. In a private-public partnership, industry, business and research will develop an ICT platform that integrates vast amounts of data from the next generation of agricultural and environmental technologies into intelligent, more efficient and sustainable technologies and solutions for site-specific crop management and environmental regulation.
