Mikonomi.dk Sholarship for Nordic Students Going Abroad


About Mikonomi.dk

We at Mikonomi.dk strive to make the financial world more transparent. We want to help people find the best loans, insurances, and financial products, so that they can focus on the most important things in life. This would not be possible without our multicultural team which make sure that we always have different perspectives on what matters most for our users.

Our Mission - Unity Through Diversity

The language education in Denmark have been, and is still, under a lot of pressure. Language courses are being cut from universities, and in order for the nordic countries to have a truly global point of view, they should focus on learning foreign languages - not only English. In the nordic countries we need to look further than the nearest borders if we want to take part in the world. That is why we at Mikonomi.dk want to support nordic students going abroad.

We are happy to announce our nordic scholarship of 5,000 DKK to support nordic students going abroad. Approximately 831,1 USD as of April 11th 2018.
