Advanced International Studies at the Nobel Institute

Award Details
Grant Activity

The Norwegian Nobel Institute Visiting Fellows Program, in collaboration with Fulbright, invites selected scholars to work and live in Oslo in order to carry out advanced studies in the realm of international affairs.

Since 1991, nearly 150 visiting fellows from over 25 countries have spent shorter or longer periods at the Institute, including many of the world's leading historians, economists and political scientists. In connection with the Fellowship Program, research seminars are held throughout the spring. The seminars are open to the public. Candidates are expected to deliver one research seminar and one public lecture while in residence at the Institute.

The program takes place in spring and each year has a different topic. The topic for 2022 will be: “The rise of China, the U.S. pivot to Asia, and great power dynamics in the 21st century.” Both specific and general approaches to the topic are welcome.
