The Society awarded its first scholarship in 1959 and continues to grant scholarships for the purpose of post-graduate study or research to British and Danish students. This year awards for studies in 2020-21 will be made to 10 postgraduate students for study in the other country. Of these awards, 7 are general and are not limited to any specific subject, while 3 are restricted: the Ove Arup Foundation award is for a student working in the field of the 'Built Environment', the William Charnley Anglo-Danish Scholarship is for a student taking an MPhil, MASt or LLM at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge and the ACE Foundation award is for a British student working in either architecture, design, art or music.
