Scholarship and SU
Your research year can be funded by scholarships for either 12 or 6 months.
- A 12-month scholarship covers the entire undergraduate research year including the master’s thesis semester.
- A 6-month scholarship covers the first part of your research year, meaning the periode you have leave of absence, before you start on the master thesis semester. During your master thesis semester you can receive SU, provided that you are eligible for receiving SU.
There is no fixed rate for undergraduate scholarships. External grantors will typically grant you DKK 10,000 a month.
Scholarship disbursements from the Faculty of Health Sciences amount to DKK 6,000 a month, for up to 6 months.
You may also need funding for operating funds/equipment such as test animals, reagents, apparatus, help in the laboratory, and transportation reimbursements for patients or test subjects.
If you plan on having a stay at a research institution abroad, then you'll need money for travel expenses, living expenses while you're away from home, visas, vaccination etc. These expenses should also be seen as part of the project's running costs.
You should discuss with your supervisor how these funds are provided.
Unfortunately, the Graduate School does not offer financial support for running costs.
Travel card covering the travel to and from your work place is at your own expense.
