U.S. citizens who have a scholarly focus on polar and High North issues, a PhD or equivalent professional/terminal degree (including a Master’s degree, depending on the field) as appropriate, and a significant publication and teaching record are eligible to apply for an Arctic Scholar award.

The Arctic award for U.S. scholars is a three-month grant to do research and lecture at any institution of higher education or research in Norway. One award is given to a U.S. scholar each year. Although Fulbright Arctic Scholar funding is for three months, the grantee may stay beyond the grant period.

The start date will be agreed upon jointly between the host university and the candidate, but must occur within the 2024-25 academic year.

This award is for U.S. citizens going to Norway, and for Norwegian citizens going to the U.S. (application deadline for the latter is 1 October 2023).

Application deadline: 15 September 2023
