The Norway-America Association (NORAM) is a non-profit organization that since 1919 has helped Norwegian students to study in North-America, and American students to study in Norway through scholarships. Annually, 4 million kroners are awarded as scholarships to about 40 recipients.
Our organization administers and awards scholarships from our own funds. We also work with organizations in the United States to help students gain experience between the two countries. Since 1919, NORAM has awarded around 5000 scholarships to Norwegian and American students.
