On May 30, 2011, H.R.H. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was at the beautiful Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg to present a scholarship from his own foundation entitled, The Crown Prince Frederik Fund.
According to the official press release from the crown prince’s private secretary, Morten Hansen:
…for the 18th time [the crown prince] presents scholarships from Crown Prince Frederik Fund – the Danish-American people’s gift to the Crown Prince for his 25th birthday, when he studied at Harvard University.
The fund’s objective is to provide financial support to students within the social sciences for one year of study at John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
This year there will be one scholarship recipient. The winner studied at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Political Science. He is currently on stay at the London School of Economics, where he also will receive a Master of Science in “Politics and Government of the European Union”. He previously studied at the University of Cambridge and University of Fudan in China.
The recipient has been a member of the City Council at Fanø during his studies. After joining the University he worked as a student employee at the National Association and volunteered with IBIS, CARE and at Teater Forår. In his spare time, the recipient is active with running and hiking.
The recipient wants to use his education at Harvard to examine how international organizations and their cooperation can be strengthened for the benefit of political stability.
