Crown Prince Frederik presents two scholarships from the Crown Prince Frederik Fund
a Crown Prince Frederik’s Fund was created for the 25th anniversary of Crown Prince Frederik’s graduation from the John F. Kennedy School of Government. The Crown Prince was educated at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, which is the name of the school of public administration at Harvard University in Boston. The fund, created as a gift from the US Department of Education, consists of two scholarships for Danes.
The purpose of the fund is to provide financial support for one year of study at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The fund awards two scholarships every year. One is awarded to a person who has not yet completed a master’s degree or who has a simple degree and wishes to enter a master’s degree at Harvard. This scholarship is approximately $48,300 plus any medical expenses, equivalent to one year of study.

The second scholarship is awarded to a Dane who has put his career on hold to start another master’s degree at Harvard. The recipient must already have a master’s degree and must have a professional career of at least seven years. The scholarship awarded to the recipient is $56,400, as well as covering medical expenses.
Crown Prince Frederik had the honor of officially awarding scholarships to two Danish women selected as part of a program set up in his honour. The ceremony, during which Queen Margrethe II’s eldest son gave a speech, took place this Monday, May 30, 2022, at Frederik VIII’s Palace in Amalienborg, Copenhagen.
“Selection for both scholarships emphasizes relevant work experience and extracurricular activities in political science, economics, law, administration, and the like, as well as good grades and references. Only people with Danish nationality can apply for funds,” explains the Ministry of Education.
Tine Nielsen Hertz, director of Kaya Research, an international think tank that focuses on strategic advice on the policy aspects of the climate agenda, has been awarded a mid-career scholarship as she begins a year of public administration studies at Harvard. The Undergraduate Scholarship was awarded to Kezia Wexøe-Mikkelsen, holder of a simple bachelor’s degree in international trade and politics at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). She worked in the field of cyber diplomacy and cyber security in the European Government Affairs department of Microsoft in Brussels.
