Award Details
Award Activity

To support this mission, grantees will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host country community, in addition to their primary research or teaching activities.

Fulbright Denmark is responsible for the Fulbright program in Denmark. Both the Danish and U.S. governments financially support this program.
