The Anglo-Danish Society

Welcome to the Anglo-Danish Society

The Anglo-Danish Society organises a lively programme of cultural and social events in the UK -  mostly with privileged access and a connection to Denmark - for Brits and Danes to enjoy each other’s culture and company. We welcome applications for membership.

The Society grants scholarships for the purpose of post-graduate studies or research. Each year awards are made to 6-8 students for study in the other country.

Awards are not limited to any specific subject with the exception of an award sponsored by the Ove Arup Foundation for a student working in the field of the “Built Environment”.

The Society enjoys the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen and Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark. HRH The Duchess of Gloucester is the Protector of the Scholarship Programme.

It also has the active support of the Royal Danish Embassy and a number of Danish and British companies.
