FELLOWSHIPS/GRANTS TO STUDY IN SCANDINAVIA

ASF’s award program for study and research abroad has been the Foundation’s most long-standing commitment to educational exchange.

During the past 100 years, over 4,000 fellowships and grants have been given to Americans and Scandinavians engaged in study, research or creative arts projects. In 2018, 58 students, professionals and artists were provided over $630,900 in total funding.

The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) offers fellowships (up to $23,000) and grants (up to $5,000) to individuals to pursue research, study or creative arts projects in one or more Scandinavian country for up to one year.

Grants are considered suitable for post-graduate scholars, professionals, and candidates in the arts to carry out research or study visits of one to three months duration.

Fellowships are intended to support a year-long stay.  Priority is given to candidates at the graduate level for dissertation-related study or research.

The number of awards varies each year according to total funds available. Awards are made in all fields.
