On Monday, May 30, 2022, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark presented scholarships to two Danish students from the Crown Prince Frederik Fund at Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg in Copenhagen.
The purpose of the Crown Prince Frederik Fund is to provide financial support to Danish students, with a focus on social sciences, for a one-year study at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in Boston, USA.
The Crown Prince Frederik Fund is a gift from Danish-Americans given to Crown Prince Frederik on his “…25th birthday during the Crown Prince’s studies at Harvard University…” according to the Danish royal court.
The recipients of the Crown Prince Frederik Fund Scholarships went to Ms. Tine Nielsen Hertz and Ms. Kezia Wexøe-Mikkelsen.
“Ms. Tine Nielsen Hertz is the director of Kaya Research, which is an international think tank focusing on strategic advice on the political aspects of the climate agenda. Tine Nielsen Hertz is to study a 1-year Mid-Career Master in Public Administration at Harvard Kennedy School for graduates with business and management experience.
Ms. Kezia Wexøe-Mikkelsen has a bachelor’s degree in International Business and Politics from Copenhagen Business School (CBS). After graduating from CBS, Kezia Wexøe-Mikkelsen has worked with cyber diplomacy and cyber security in Microsoft’s European Government Affairs department in Brussels. Kezia Wexøe-Mikkelsen will begin her studies at Harvard Kennedy School in the autumn, where she will work to gain a greater insight into how, with the help of technological solutions, one can create positive changes in society. “
