Aalborg University has only a very limited number of scholarships available. The likelihood of obtaining a scholarship is far higher in other places - e.g. through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Education in your home country.

An energy planning student successfully applied for an e8 scholarship, but note that this is limited to very good students from developing countries. Americans may try the Gudrun Gytel Fund.
