International students can apply through the Jonas Thomsen Sekyere Scholarship.
The Jonas Thomsen Sekyere Scholarship
The Scholarship was established in 2012 to provide lodgings at Regensen for international students studying at the University of Copenhagen or the Technical University of Denmark. The scholarship is open to both exchange students as well as students from abroad taking full degrees in Copenhagen. Students studying at the University of Copenhagen or the Technical University of Denmark for less than one year (two semesters) will not be eligible. The scholarship covers the monthly rental costs of a room at Regensen for the full term of residence. Students are asked to contribute toward the cost of utilities, at a fixed rate of DKK 1600 per month.
Applicants are required to fill out an application form, and attach a short description of themselves (max one page) indicating their reasons for applying to Regensen. A commitee consisting of the College Provost and elected student representatives will select the winning candidate in early June of each year. The deadline for applications is June 1st.
Applications must be sent by e-mail to Regensens Klokkers at:
Questions concerning the application procedure should also be directed to the address above.
The scholarship is dedicated to the memory of an inspirational member of the college whose time among us was cut tragically short: Jonas Thomsen Sekyere.
