Denmark/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.3 Grants, awards, scholarships

It is a characteristic element in The Nordic Cultural Model (see chapter 9.1) that the award landscape since the 1960s has been dominated by grants, scholarships for training, travel bursaries, work grants etc. organised by public institutions like the Danish Arts Foundation, the Danish Arts Council and the Danish Arts Agency (see chapter 3.2).

In recent years individual artists as well as public cultural institutions have increasingly also received grants, awards and scholarships by some private Danish foundations (see chapter 5.1.5).
