Award Dates

Awards may begin any time between August 2022 and May 2023. The last month of the award can be no later than August 2023. Awards 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). N.B. summer month projects should be proposed to take place in 2023. If research is planned during the summer of 2022, it must be part of a longer stay extending into the fall to be considered.

The requested award 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.

Special Features

All U.S. awardees 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 awardees 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 awardees for the seminar/ski weekend, which is a highlight of the Fulbright year.

Research
?

Research includes activities involving scientific research, qualitative research, quantitative research, and practice-based research, including artistic research. Research can take place in locations such as the laboratory, the field, the archives, or an artist residency. It can be experimental, clinical, or applied. It can include examining policies, systems, theories, methods, interactions, and works of art and music, with the objective to evaluate or develop new knowledge or works. Quantifiable (tangible) outcomes can include publications (books, journal articles, scripts, etc.), conference presentations, artistic and musical compositions, exhibitions, performances, films, and patents.

Teaching

Teaching includes classroom teaching, as well as giving guest lectures, workshops, and seminars, and engaging in other related activities. Classroom teaching is typically at the undergraduate and graduate level, and courses may be designed by the scholar or prescribed by the host institution and may be taught or co-taught by the scholar. The teaching load varies by award, as well as the host institution. Scholars may also consult on building research capacity, advise graduate students, and assist with thesis advising.
