To be eligible for the High North Fellowship Program, you must be registered at a higher education institution in Canada, Japan, Russia, South Korea or the US. Your home institution should have an agreement of cooperation with the institution you wish to attend in Norway.

The program is mainly targeted at students at the Master and Bachelor level, but is also open to PhD students. Bachelor and Master students must take for-credit courses in Norway, while PhD students can come as research fellows. The scholarships are granted for one or two semesters, and recipients must stay for at least four months.
The High North Fellowship Program is directed towards studies that are relevant to the North, and only open to students within certain areas of study. Please see What can I study for more information.
