After intense preparations, our newest initiative, CSCD Youth Academy, was launched this spring. The first 23 candidates were accepted, and we are humbled that so many talented and bright top students from Danish universities wished to participate in the first, unique semester of the CSCD Youth Academy.
We are currently preparing to welcome new bright and promising students, and the application window for the upcoming semester is open. The preparations for the new program are in close collaboration with the involved embassies (See more on the upcoming semester below).
The CSCD Youth Academy was made possible with immense and highly valued support from the involved ambassadors and embassies, who generously and warmheartedly opened their doors for our top students. They were greeted by Their Excellencies the Ambassadors, who showed them the inside world of diplomacy, firsthand.
We are deeply grateful for the warm reception, and our students have reported back that not only did they gain highly valued new knowledge, but they also had an experience that made a lasting impression and will stay with them on their path to their promising careers as the future Danish Diplomats, Policy Makers, and Stake Holders of Denmark.
Here follows some highlights from the embassy visits from the recently finished CSCD Youth Academy Spring Semester of 2022.

We continue the successful collaboration with the student organisations ID (the biggest student association at @University of Copenhagen) and POLIS (Political students’ organisation @Aalborg University) and have further expanded with two more student organisations: IBP (International Business and Politics @CBS) and ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association @Copenhagen). We are excited to continue the fruitful and valuable work with all four highly engaged and agenda-setting student organisations.
For the upcoming fall semester, we have made arrangements with several ambassadors, and we are humbled, deeply grateful, and most excited that they have so generously agreed to open their doors for our talented students from Danish universities. We will be visiting 6 embassies and are looking very much forward to initiating the program for this semester.
