Award Details
Grant Activity

Teach and/or conduct research in an area of interest.

Grant Length
Three to nine months
Grant Dates

Grants may begin any time between August 2021 and May 2022. The last month of the grant can be no later than August 2022. Grants are awarded in increments of whole months only.

Projects should not be planned for the summer months, unless there are very specific reasons for doing so (for example, the lifecycle of animals being studied). NB summer month projects should be proposed to take place in 2022. If research is planned during the summer of 2021, it must be part of a longer stay extending into the fall to be considered.

The requested grant length must be justified and clearly outlined in the project statement as a timeline in chart form or as a list of planned activity broken down by month. A detailed project plan is especially important for proposed stays of an entire academic year.


Any institution of higher education or research in Norway.

The Research Council of Norway has designated a number of Norwegian Centers of Excellence and Centers of Research-based Innovation in a variety of fields. For lists of centers and further information click here and here.

Special Features

All U.S. grantees to Norway have two opportunities to gather as a group. The first is an orientation program held in Oslo in August. The second is a seminar in February during which grantees present on their projects followed by a weekend at a ski resort near Lillehammer. Domestic travel and lodging expenses for these gatherings are covered by the Fulbright Foundation. In addition, these expenses are covered for dependent family members of grantees for the seminar/ski weekend, which is a highlight of the Fulbright year.
