Bevica Scholarship Programme

 How can we create an inclusive society for all?

Bevica Fonden invites students and lecturers at Danish universities, university colleges and design schools to take part in the Bevica Scholarship Programme. 

  • The programme supports innovative and bold thinkers to investigate how their profession can contribute to the development of universal design as a lever for the Sustainable Development Goals’ pledge to Leave No One Behind.


  • Society needs inclusivity in all areas and arenas, as current products, environments, programmes, and services are designed for idealised average users, excluding many.


  • The scholarship programme calls for multidisciplinary action to acknowledge that living with different and changing abilities is a common human condition and that society should accommodate this in all aspects.

The process

The Bevica Scholarship Programme consist of three phases:

  • The Ideation phase Jan.-Mar. 2025: Where you get new knowledge and participate in the workshops in order to form a project idea.
  • The Creation phase May-Sep. 2025: Where a selected shortlist works on refining their project, figuring out where they want to go to investigate their problem, and preparing their pitch for the awards ceremony.
  • The Investigation phase Oct. 2025-Dec. 2026: Where the winners travel abroad to investigate their problem statements and gain new knowledge.
