The Copenhagen Post

A warm g’day from Crown Princess Mary
04.10.2007
Welcome to Denmark! Welcome to Copenhagen University

Party-crashing was how vice-chancellor Lykke Friis put it! She was speaking in her usual energetic and forthright manner to the participants at a day of lectures about Australia in the new auditorium at Copenhagen University.

She was also speaking to two young Australian students who had won the Crown Princess Mary Award to study for a year in Denmark. And she was speaking in the presence of the Crown Princess herself.
The award presentation ceremony was held as the culmination of a conference organised by the European Association of Studies of Australia, which The Copenhagen Post reported from last week.
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the auditorium was packed when the sleek black cars slid up to the red carpet.

A very thoughtful wedding gift from Copenhagen University. Too bad that 2009 will be the last year for the awards. I noticed that at least Mary's 2006-2008 speeches are on the CP couple's website. Maybe a clue to how much she appreciated the gift.

I was amused that in last year's (2007) speech, she asked the winners how their three weeks of intensive Danish lessons were going.

The awards of 10.000 Danish krons are said to be for "living expenses." I noticed that one award winner said (in a newspaper interview) that it would allow her to afford to study in Denmark for an entire year rather than a single semester. Would that be accurate?

Perhaps it supplemented the funds she already had and that enabled hr to study there a year?

I think from reading this speech, you can slighty guess that CP Mary misses her home a little, but is very happy and proud to now be a dane.

I noticed that, too.
Hasn't it been nearly a year and one-half since she last visited Australia?

In my post yesterday, I was not sufficiently descriptive in my question. I have no idea of the cost of living in Denmark. I'm just curious: could 10.000 Danish krons pay for rent or food for one or two months? In practical terms, how much help would this award really be?

I didn't know about this Scholarship, until I found it today. Reading and looking back on the other posts with pictures, this looks like an incredible event. Mary looks wonderful as ever, and congratualtions to the people with her. Thank you for all the links. x

It was a busy day for CP Mary, I suggest. As far as I remember, 2008 scholarship was the last and I read this year sees no scholarships from Mary. Did I get something wrong?

I think this is a nice event and for Australian students to study in Denmark. Mary looked nice at this event. I liked how in her speech she addressed each one of the two students.

Profesional, sweet outfit ! LOVE the shoes (they are VALENTINO and she wore them the day of her engagement) and I love the pants and shirt, and most of all her beautiful smile.
