It takes more than good grades and persistence to obtain a Master’s degree. Master’s degree candidates, especially those who pursue a degree abroad at a public institution face numerous challenges from the start. Apart from having to overcome the culture shock and home-sickness, international students are often confronted with financial challenges.
Each year more than 5 000 international students enroll in the English-taught Master’s programs in Denmark and even more come as exchange students for a semester. Danish, being one of the hardest languages to learn, poses yet another obstacle for foreign students to earn money and support themselves while studying.
Due to Moneezy’s long history in striving for diversity at the workplace and the ever-increasing living costs in Denmark, we have decided to establish the Moneezy Scholarship which is to be awarded to one prospective international student who’s accepted to study a Master’s degree in Denmark in 2021 or will be attending a Danish university as an exchange student.
The intent of Moneezy is to help develop brave global-minded individuals who see higher education as means to pursue their dreams irrespective of country borders and drive our global society forward. The Moneezy Scholarship grant is 5 000 DKK and is awarded once per year.
While we have a required above B+ grade average, the Moneezy Scholarship award winner is a highly motivated individual driven by determination and passion.
You must be under 35 years of age at the date of the university program start.
A letter of acceptance from an institution of higher education in Denmark (for the academic year of 2021) as a full-time student in a Master’s program must be enclosed. Exchange students are expected to provide a confirmation that they will indeed study for a semester in Denmark.
The scholarship is awarded only to persons with outstanding academic achievements so applicants must provide a copy of their Bachelor’s degree transcript or a current grade transcript if they haven’t yet earned a degree at the time of applying for the grant.
Provide documentation of affiliation with a volunteer organization and participation in university committees, clubs and/or associations (during your undergraduate education).
Applicants are expected to write and enclose a short essay (500 words) on the topic of “What’s the positive impact of globalization on society?”. PDF is the preferred format.
Applicants are to provide a CV/resume covering their contact information, general background, education, internships, or work (if any), volunteer work and accomplishments. PDF is the preferred format.
How can the scholarship grant be used?
Our scholarship is designed so that the recipients can use the funds depending on their needs and current situation. However, we hope that the award will be used for tuition, fees, academic materials, or language lessons.
Can I apply more than once for the scholarship?
You can apply more than one time if you meet the criteria for application, and you haven’t been selected as a recipient of the award before.
When will the winner be announced?

How will Moneezy contact me if I win the scholarship?
You will get contacted by email and/or phone call so make sure that you include your contact information in your application.
What happens if Moneezy can’t get in contact with the winner of the scholarship?

Ok, I submitted my application but forgot to include a document/made a mistake?

What if I don’t have a Bachelor’s degree yet?
Persons who will earn their Bachelor’s degree in a 6-month period and can provide a letter of acceptance from an institution of high education in Denmark as full-time students can still apply for the scholarship.
