What is Danida Alumni Network?
Danida Alumni Network connects Danida alumni and encourages them to stay in touch. It is a digital platform for networking and collaboration with Danish universities, companies, NGOs, foundations and institutions.
Danida alumni are current or former Danida fellows, who have pursued Master's or PhD degrees, or completed qualifying courses for professionals arranged by or at Danish institutions of higher and further education.
Since the very first Danida fellows came to Denmark in the 1960s, about twenty thousand fellows from 120 countries in the Global South have been awarded Danida Fellowships.
All over the world former Danida fellows take up important positions. They hold jobs were they influence and effect change. In different capacities from doctors and nurses to teachers, professors, judges, government ministers and CEOs they drive development in a broad spectrum of sectors.

Common for all fellows is their unique connection to Denmark and Danida Fellowship Centre. Many of the fellows have stayed in the hostel at Danida Fellowship Centre in the heart of Frederiksberg. Through social and cultural activities they have established close relationships and friendships that transcend professional boundaries, borders and nationalities.
To support and expand on the linkages and partnerships in this unique global network of fellows, Danida Fellowship Centre launched Danida Alumni Network in May 2016.
