Special Features

This grant is offered through a unique partnership between the National Science Foundation and Fulbright Iceland and provides an opportunity to build relations with both Fulbright and NSF. If an applicant has research costs that cannot reasonably be covered by the stipend, there may be a possibility to cover certain costs through the grant, or the applicant may apply separately to NSF for additional funding if needs are substantial. 

The grant is a great opportunity for those who wish to conduct NSF-funded research abroad, but also have a strong support system locally, as is provided by the Fulbright Commission.
