The purpose of the scholarships is to provide financial support for Americans to study in Norway. By supporting post-graduate study or research in areas of mutual importance to Norway and the United States, we hope to bring the two countries closer. Through awarding scholarships to American students and researchers, we invest in the growth of knowledge and understanding and it will strengthen the ties of friendship between the two countries.

The amounts vary from NOK 10 000  – 40 000. The size of the individual grants will depend on the research subject, need, purpose and the intended length of stay in Norway.


  • Scholarships are only for full-time graduate level studies in Norway, both exchange and full degree. Online courses or summer programs are not approved.

  • The project description must be of academic merit, and the project must be feasible within the proposed framework.

  • Students can apply without being accepted to an institution before the application deadline, but must submit documentation of admission/invitation if awarded a scholarship.

  • The project/academic field must be of mutual benefit to the two countries.
