About Danida Alumni

Danida alumni are current or former Danida fellows, who have pursued Master’s or PhD degrees or completed qualifying courses for professionals offered by or at Danish organisations and institutions of higher and further education. Since the first Danida Fellows came to Denmark in the 1960s, this group has grown to encompass over 24,000 people from more than 120 countries. Whilst enhancing their professional qualifications, these alumni have gained knowledge about Danish culture and our way of life.

Around the world Danida alumni hold important positions. From researchers to teachers to government ministers and CEOs, they effect change and drive sustainable development in a broad spectrum of sectors. Meet and learn more about some of our alumni in the videos and portraits as well as through their testimonials (see the left hand menu).
