UW Scan|Design Fellowship Program

Application Deadline: January 31, 2020

In 2005, the Scan|Design Foundation by Inger and Jens Bruun, based in Seattle, Washington, established a study abroad fellowship program at the University of Washington. The program is designed to foster Danish-American relations by providing generous financial support to undergraduate and graduate students who have been accepted to study abroad in Denmark for a semester, a summer, or a full academic year through any of UW Seattle’s Danish study abroad exchange programs. Summer scholarships are also available for summer travel study (exchange or independent study options). The program also supports Danish students attending UW-Seattle via these exchange agreements. Fellowships are intended to provide financial support to students from all academic fields of study.

Fellowships are awarded in Winter Quarter for the following summer and academic year. They typically provide $7500 – $9000 in funding per fall/spring semester of exchange. Summer scholars are eligible for varying amounts of funding depending on their program type and length. Fellows are eligible for a maximum of two semesters of funding.


  • Be a US citizen;
  • Be a University of Washington matriculated undergraduate sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student. Students participating in fee-based degree programs run by UW Educational Outreach (UWEO) are also eligible.
  • For the summer Fellowship program, there are additional application requirements.
