Scholarship overview

We believe in global society

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.

COURAGE

Take a chance when no one else will, follow your vision, stand up for what you believe in. This is the key to success. By choosing to study abroad, most students have already done all of the above-mentioned early in their lives and this, we think, is commendable. Courage should be rewarded!
