Special Features

The Chair is welcome to travel to other universities in Norway for shorter periods of time. No additional funding will be provided for such travel.

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 in February. 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.
