Danish Ministry of Education Scholarship Scheme
Looks like a comfortable stipend according to figures here

University of Copenhagen

The Danish Government has provided the Danish universities with a number of tuition waivers and stipends for students with non-EU/ non-EEA citizenships. The University of Copenhagen has 51 tuition waivers with accompanying stipends to give out in 2008 and 57 in 2009.

To be eligible for this tuition waiver and stipend, you must be a non-EU/ non-EEA citizen and be admitted to a two-year master's programme at the University of Copenhagen. In 2008 the rate of the stipend is DKK 7,569 per month (EUR 1,009 per month). Please be aware that you may have to pay taxes of the stipend.

Copenhagen Business School

CBS offers a number of scholarships to graduate students. CBS welcomes scholarship applications from graduate applicants coming from outside EU/EEA regardless of gender, age, nationality and religion - we are interested in your motivation and your academic background.

In 2008 CBS offered 18 scholarships; the number for 2009 is not yet available. Each scholarship consists of an exemption from paying tuition fee and a monthly scholarship of app. DKK 7,100 to cover living costs in Denmark. The scholarship is paid out in advance every month and has a maximum length of 22 months, starting 1 September in the year the student is accepted and ending in June two years later.

IT University of Copenhagen

The Danish Government has decided that the IT University may allocate a small number of state scholarships (free tuition and covering of living expenses) to the academically best qualified applicants who would otherwise have to pay tuition fees. The exact number of scholarships is laid down in the Danish Finance Act and is at present 2 – 4 scholarships per year.

Umea University
Are there any tuition fees?

No. There are no tuition fees at Umea University because Swedish Public Universities are still financed by government funding. This may change in the future.
Internationally, the university is known for research relating to the genome of the Populus tree (Life sciences), contributions to the Gleason problem and function spaces on fractals (mathematics) and its school of industrial design which gives degree programs in English open to students from all of the world. It is also the biggest provider of distance education courses in the Nordic countries.
There are 3 English program offered.
- International Business Program
- Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

NYT: $300 Million Scholarship for Study in China Signals a New Focus

The Schwarzman Scholars program will pay all expenses for 200 students each year from around the world for a one-year master’s program at Tsinghua University in Beijing....

The program plans to take in 10,000 students over the next 50 years, forming an international network that can bridge differences between China and the West, he said. Forty-five percent will come from the United States, 20 percent from China, and 35 percent from Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America and the rest of Asia. Africa may be added later.
