Information about scholarship to USA – Full degree and exchange

Norway-Amerika Association would like to inform about a grant their students to study in the US at the graduate levels (master, PhD, post-doc) can apply.

The deadline is December 18th 2016 for the study autum 2017 and spring 2018. Students do not have admission to school / applied exchange from their institution by the deadline. We support both helgrad and delgrad, and this year allocated we scholarships to 25 students.

Our amounts range from $ 3,000 – $ 20,000, which comes very well to school costs and living expenses.

We often meet students who are not thinking about financing before they enter the program and hope that you can remind those on being early to think about funding
