Andre USA-legater

Udover Danmark-Amerika Fondet og Fulbright Kommissionens egne legater administrerer vi også en række andre legater og programmer til studier og forskning i USA. Vi er ikke direkte involveret i alle legaterne og man vil oftest selv skulle kontakte det universitet eller den fond, som står bag legaterne for yderligere information.

Danmark-Amerika Fondet og Fulbright Kommissionen tager forbehold for eventuelle ændringer i indhold, universitet og beløb. Vi modtager opslagene direkte fra universiteterne, fondene og lignende og vi kan derfor ikke tage ansvar for unøjagtigheder eller fejlagtige oplysninger.

Vi har her samlet en liste over eksterne legater og programmer til studier og forskning i USA:

Washington Semester Program, American University

Danmark-Amerika Fondet har hvert år mulighed for at nominere to danske studerende til Washington Semester Program (WSP) på American University i Washington, D.C.

WSP tilbyder en enestående kombination af undervisning og praktik. Programmet er sammensat på den måde, at man modtager undervisning på AU tre dage om ugen og er i praktik to dage om ugen. Der er rig mulighed for at få nogle spændende praktikophold i Washington, D.C.

Legatet består i en nedsættelse af den normale undervisningsafgift på American University på $2.000 for et semester. Det betyder, at den reelle undervisningsafgift vil være ca. $6.000 og man skal derudover selv betale udgifter såsom rejse, bolig, forsikring osv.

Programmet er for bachelorstuderende og alle studerende på programmet er visiting students. Det betyder, at både de internationale og amerikanske studerende på WSP ikke er indskrevet på en hel uddannelse ved AU, men de følger programmet som en del af deres uddannelse ved et andet universitet i USA eller udenfor USA.

Hvis du har interesse i at deltage i Washington Semester Program, skal du udfylde og sende en udskrift af Washington Semester Programs online ansøgningsskema til os sammen med bevis for engelskkundskaber, dine karakterudskrifter fra universitetet og en anbefaling fra en underviser.

Ansøgningsfrist: Kontakt os på info@daf-fulb.dk

De udvalgte får besked fra Danmark-Amerika Fondet hurtigst muligt og vil i samarbejde med vores vejleder skulle sende deres ansøgning til American University. Den endelige godkendelse og optagelse er op til American University.

Mere information om Washington Semester Program, American University og deres ansøgningsskema findes på Washington Semester Programs hjemmeside.

Natasja Fischer Jacobsen læste ved Washington Semester Program i foråret 2014:

Natasja WSP2Washington Semester Programmet er en fantastisk mulighed for at kombinere teori med praksis, og som en ‘American politics nørd’ følte jeg mig meget privilegeret over chancen for at studere i verdens politiske centrum. På WSP kombineres traditionel klasseundervisning og gæsteforelæsninger på D.C.s utallige institutioner med et praktikophold. Jeg blev som den eneste ikke-amerikaner ansat i Democratic National Committee, den politiske arm af det Hvide Hus, hvor jeg beskæftigede mig med politiske kampagner og fundraising. Med undervisning på et højt fagligt niveau og et relevant og spændende praktikophold, har jeg i løbet af mit semester i Washington D.C. tilegnet mig unikke kompetencer og erfaringer, som jeg ikke på samme måde har kunnet tilegne mig i Danmark.

Bemærk: Man søger direkte gennem American Women’s Club. Disse legater administreres altså ikke af DAF og Fulbright.

Loeb Fellowship at Harvard Design School

“Loeb Fellows are accomplished, mid-career professionals who have been engaged in their field for a minimum of five years, have compiled a record of exemplary work, and have been identified as leaders by their peers. Most applicants have expertise in the disciplines in which the Design School grants degrees – architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and urban design. Others come from related fields such as journalism, fine arts, non-profit administration, and public service. Good candidates typically share a passion for improving the quality of the built and natural environment, and a commitment to improving their own skills in pursuit of that goal. Ideal applicants demonstrate a proven ability to create their own program of work or study and carry it through to completion.

Since the central focus and goal of the Fellowship is to improve the environment of cities and natural areas in the United States, most applicants are from this country. However, it is clear that the program’s goal cannot be accomplished without reference to work being done in other parts of the world. Therefore, the Fellowship welcomes applications from qualified international practitioners. Diversity is a very important consideration for the Fellowship on many levels. Applications are encouraged from men and women, people of color, and those with both typical and atypical career paths.

The Fellowship is intended to serve practitioners, not to be an academic sabbatical. Applications from full-time academics are not encouraged. However, candidates whose work is divided between teaching and practice, and for whom this program will reinforce their work as practitioners, are welcome to apply.

Nieman Foundation Fellowship to journalists at Harvard University

“A Nieman Fellowship is an extraordinary, transformative learning opportunity open to journalists working in all media in every country around the world. Those selected for the program spend two full semesters at Harvard auditing classes with some of the university’s greatest thinkers, participating in Nieman events and collaborating with peers. Nieman Fellows are also able to audit classes at other local universities including MIT and Tufts.

Each year, the Nieman Foundation awards paid fellowships to up to 24 journalists working in print, broadcast, digital and audiovisual media. Journalists and other professionals working in positions that support journalism, such as the business or technology departments of news companies, are welcome to apply for one of the foundation’s short-term Visiting Fellowships.

During their time at Harvard, Nieman Fellows attend seminars, shop talks, master classes and journalism conferences designed to strengthen their professional skills and leadership capabilities, thereby helping to fortify the news industry itself. With the knowledge they gain on campus and the relationships they build, fellows often return to work as journalism entrepreneurs, industry innovators and top managers in their newsrooms.

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must be full-time journalists (including freelancers) with at least five years’ experience. Journalists may work for news or editorial departments of newspapers, wire services, radio, television, websites, online publications or magazines of general public interest. Photojournalists, editorial cartoonists, filmmakers, columnists and broadcast producers are also eligible.
  • For the Nieman-Berkman Fellowship in Journalism Innovation, individuals who work in fields that support journalism — such as the business or technology side of news companies — are also eligible to apply.
  • For the short-term Visiting Fellowship, applicants do not need to be practicing journalists, but must demonstrate in their project proposal how their work will impact journalism.
  • Any journalism-related work completed as a university student does not count toward experience. People who work in public relations or at organizations whose primary business is not the media are not eligible.
  • If appropriate, the applicant’s employer should approve a leave of absence for the academic year (10 months).
  • Within the past two years, an applicant should not have participated in a fellowship or taken a leave of absence from work that lasted four months or longer.

There is no nomination process. Candidates nominate themselves by submitting an application and supplementary materials. There is no age limit. There are no academic prerequisites and a college degree is not required.

For more information, please visit the Nieman Foundation website.”

Princeton University - For Danish Undergraduate & Graduate Students

“Thanks to a special donation from a Danish family to Princeton University, the University is now seeking Danish applicants, who qualify for this financial aid, which would cover the cost of tuition at Princeton at an amount in excess of USD 30,000 per year. At the graduate level, complementary maintenance support is highly likely for those applicants, whose academic merit and potential meet Princeton’s graduate admission standards, thus making it quite affordable to attend this prestigious university.

Preference for this funding will be given to the full degree seeking undergraduate student. Therefore graduate degree seeking students applying must be aware that the announcement of any funding will be made fairly late, because the entire undergraduate admission process has to be finished before any decisions can be made on the graduate level. Please note that this funding will not be given to visiting, non-degree seeking undergraduate or graduate students.”

Bemærk venligst, at legatet kun går til studerende som vil tage en fuld grad og, at Princeton University opprioriterer undergraduate studerende. Dette betyder ikke, at graduate studerende ikke skal søge legatet, men man vil som graduate studerende skulle vente længe på en endelig tilbagemelding fra Princeton University vedrørende støtte, som det tydeligt fremgår af ovenstående tekst.

For mere information om ansøgningsfristen henvises til Princetons egen hjemmeside. Eventuelle ansøgninger skal sendes direkte til Princeton University. Husk, at det tydeligt må fremgå af ansøgningen, at du er interesseret i dette specielle legat.

Thanks to Scandinavia – TTS Scholarship by University

Ud over de legater Danmark-Amerika Fondet administrerer direkte for Thanks to Scandinavia (se her), findes der en række TTS-legater, som kan søges af danske studerende til bestemte universiteter i USA:

Brandeis University
Columbia University
Cornell University
University of Oklahoma
University of Pennsylvania

For at kunne søge legaterne skal du være dansk statsborger. Du kan søge legaterne, hvis du er studerende i Danmark eller hvis du allerede er i gang med en uddannelse på et af ovenstående amerikanske universiteter.

The Edith and Arnold N. Bodtker Grant

“The Edith and Arnold N. Bodtker Grant for Research and Internship (henceforth referred to as “Bodtker Grant”) was created in 1998 to provide stipends of up to $5,000 for students interested in studying and researching topics related to Danish immigration to North America and Danish American and Danish Canadian culture. The Bodtker Grant is for research and internship in the Danish American Archive and Library in Blair, Nebraska, the Danish American Archive at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa, the Museum of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa, or elsewhere in North America. North American students interested in similar, appropriate topics may apply for a Bodtker Grant for research in Denmark.

Applicants must be currently enrolled at or graduated from a university level institution. They must have a designed research or internship project that makes a stay in the USA or Canada (for Danish or North American students) or in Denmark (for North American students) necessary for their research.

Proposals for grant projects, as well as a proposed budget, and least two letter of reference should be submitted by April 15 or September 15 to Egon Bodtker, President, Danish American Heritage Society, 925 15th St. NE, Salem, OR 97301, USA. Results of the competition will be announced by May 20 and October 20.”
