Award Details
Grant Activity

Serve as a roving specialist in the study of the United States. The scholar will make one-time visits to lower secondary schools (student ages 14-16) or upper secondary schools (ages 16-18) and educator conferences to give up-to-date information on important issues related to American society.

The aim is to give teachers of English an opportunity to interact with an American colleague and to let students practice their English, confront an American with some of their ideas about the U.S. and experience an American teacher's approach to teaching.

The scholar will travel to schools throughout Norway to teach in-service courses for practicing English teachers and to teach students in cooperation with their teachers in the classroom.

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.
