Gudrun Gytel Fund Scholarships



The Gudrun Gytel Fund:

Mrs. Gudrun L. Warrick
1808 Mark Twain St.
Palo Alto,
CA 94303-2960




 The Gudrun Gytel Fund was established in 1998 in order to provide qualified American University students with the
  opportunity to further their knowledge of Danish culture, history, language, literature, politics, and society.
 The scholarship supports semester or academic year-long study at recognized Danish institutions of higher education in
 the fields of humanities and social sciences, as well as in architecture, engineering, technology, and related fields.



 Applicants must be American citizens at least 18 years of age and submit the following materials:

  • Statement of Purpose, describing field of study, goals, and institutional affiliation of planned study in Denmark. 
                       Limited to two pages in length, double spaced.

  • Academic transcript, recent official transcript from student’s current educational institution in the US.

  • Letter of recommendation, from a faculty member familiar with the academic work of the applicant.


Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants in order to support either five-months of study in Denmark (Fall semester: September – January, or Spring semester: February - June) or ten months (full academic year: September - June).  

The scholarship funds are intended to cover housing and living expenses in Denmark as well as educational supplies and any special fees or tuition.    (As scholarship funds are dispersed to the recipient’s Danish bank account, no funds are distributed until student has arrived and settled in Denmark).


 Upon completion of study in Denmark, scholarship recipients are encouraged to write a letter describing his/her
 educational experiences to the founder of the Gudrun Gytel Fund.
