Funding ideas

Paying for a stay at Mariager Højskole doesn't have to be complicated. Sit down and make a realistic budget of your expenses and how you want to finance it. Here are some suggestions on how you can put your finances together:

  • Holiday work (DKK 15,000-30,000).
  • Savings or child savings.
  • Find personal sponsors from your family or friends (e.g. DKK 100-1,000 per month).
  • Ask your church if they will support your stay, possibly in exchange for you doing your ministry internship in the church (DKK 5-10,000).
  • Do a fundraising event in the church/youth ministry.

Support schemes
& Stipendia

The Management Scheme

Let your church support you. Mariager Højskole and UngMosaik (formerly PBU) offer a solution for more leaders to develop in a good professional environment, combined with internship in the local Children and Youth Work in the church. If your church sees you as a future leader it wants to invest in, they have the opportunity to support you. If you and your church are interested in applying for the leadership scheme, please contact the Headteacher.

PITSTOP scheme

For those who are in higher education but need to regain motivation or take a break before completing their studies. You can apply for financial support.

Mentoring scheme

If you have not completed secondary education, you can go to a college with a Mentoring Scheme. Here, you will be assigned one of the college's trained mentors, who will help you get ready for secondary education. You will also be able to apply for reduced student fees.

Seasonal pools

In addition to the regular schemes, you may be lucky to fit into a pool that the college has available to share out at certain times. (For example the diversity pool which supported families with children and adults over 50.) Contact us to find out if there is something just for you.

Norway, Greenland & Faroe Islands

As part of the Kingdom of Denmark or for those coming from Norway, there are special opportunities to help you finance your stay at the college in the form of loan boxes and special education pools.

Contact us and we will help you find out if you can benefit from these options.

Support club

If none of the options above work, there is another option: the Mariager Højskole Support Club supports current or future students who dream of being a leader, working on their academic studies, are circumstance challenged, or those students who are international and/or new to Denmark.

Municipal or international funding opportunities

There may be different possibilities to get municipal or international support for you high school stay. Check your options.
