The Fulbright program is an American scholarship program that allocates funds to Norwegian and American students and researchers who wish to spend time in the partner country to study, research, or teach.
Each year approximately 40 Norwegians receive grants to study, teach, or conduct research in the US, and some 30 Americans receive grants to do the same in Norway. Grants are awarded in science and technology, the arts and humanities, education, journalism, media, government, law, and virtually every academic discipline. Students at the Masters and PhD level and scholars (post-PhD or equivalent) are eligible to apply, and grants currently range in size from NOK 100 000 to 200 000.
It is assumed that the study has not already begun at a university in the United States, and that the study venue in the United States is accredited.
Minimum stay time in the United States is an academic year. Exception: PhD students may apply for a scholarship for a minimum of 6 months (new for the academic year 2018–2019).
There is no requirement that you have been admitted to an American apprenticeship before applying for a grant from Fulbright. Applicant is responsible for the application process and admission to an accredited college in the United States.
