Other scholarships and grants

The Norway-America Association also administrates other scholarships that are not for students, but scholarships that could be used for continuing education or similar opportunities. Below is a list of scholarships, please note that in order to qualify for these grants, Norwegian citizenship is required (visiting lectureship is also for Swedish citizens).

The scholarships vary if they are paid directly from NORAM or we administrate them on behalf of our partner organizations.
