To contribute to the development of a productive private sector the ELSP offers scholarship support to outstanding emerging entrepreneurs and business leaders in Danida’s Programme partner countries and South Africa. An internationally-recognised Masters degree will equip suitable candidates to further contribute to the growth of their home companies and of their nation’s economy in the globalised market.

Female applicants are particularly encouraged to apply, as the ELSP recognizes the particular barriers facing potential female business leaders and innovators.

From 2009 the ELSP will offer scholarship support for an increasingly wide choice of internationally-accredited private-sector related Masters Degrees in Denmark or South Africa.
