In addition the CAG receives 450,000 DKK annually for a three-year period for the enrollment of one PhD student a year. This means that the CAG itself has to raise funding to cover the remaining expenses for PhD students.

Each CAG is expected to supplement the amount with additional funds, to finance a least one PhD student per year. If a CAG wants to allocate the funds for PhD enrollment in smaller amounts in order to allow a greater number of enrollments, that is possible in agreement with the GCHSP secretariat.

The PhD students must be enrolled at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Copenhagen or at the Technical University of Denmark.
