Grants for US Scholars

The Traditional Scholars program offers US citizens with a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in any field the opportunity to research and/or teach in Norway for a period of 3 to 10 months.

The Roving Scholars program offers US citizens with a Ph.D., or a masters degree with teaching experience, the opportunity to travel and teach in schools and professional development milieus across Norway.  Established in 1987, the Fulbright Roving Scholars program brings highly skilled American teachers to Norway to lead seminars for both students and teachers. Roving Scholars have extensive knowledge in a variety of fields; their lessons focus on American history and culture, often combined with innovative and inspiring ideas on pedagogy and teaching methods. The Roving Scholar Program is a unique Norwegian Fulbright opportunity in that does not exist in other countries.

US citizens with a Ph.D. in Biology, Geology, Chemistry, Engineering, or a closely related field with a focus on polar and High North issues, and 5-10 years of experience,  are eligible to apply for an Arctic Chair grant.  This is a three-four month grant  to do research and lecture at a Norwegian institution of higher education or research. One award is given to a U.S. scholar each year.

US citizens with a Ph.D. in relevant fields are invited to carry out advanced studies in the realm of international affairs at the Nobel Institute. This Advanced International Studies grant will have a different focus from year to year in accordance with the annual topic for the Nobel Institute's Visiting Fellows Program. The topic for 2017 will be “Disarmament and Armament Dynamics in the Present World.” Applications with both specific and general approaches to the topic are welcome.
