Yesterday Crown Prince Frederik awarded grants at Christian VIII's Palace, Amalienborg, to two graduates from Copenhagen University to continue their studies. The funds for the awards come from the Crown Prince Frederik Fund which was set up as a 25th birthday gift to Frederik by Danish Americans when he was studying at Harvard.

The foundation gives financial assistance to outstanding students of social policy and sciences for one year of study at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. The two recipients this year are Guang Yang from Wenzhou in Zheizhang, China (who arrived in Denmark 5 years ago) and Thomas Emil Jensen.
