Who can apply

The scholarship scheme is available for Russian students interested in studying a semester or two in Norway.  

Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Norwegian-Russian Scholarship scheme has been suspended.

Both students who are currently enrolled at a Russian higher education institution and academic staff/teachers at Russian higher education institutions are eligible for grants. All applicants must be Russian citizens to be eligible for grants. HK-dir refers to higher education institutions, students, and academic staff/teachers belonging to the internationally recognized territory of the Russian Federation.

Applicants must fulfill the announced language and educational requirements corresponding to the requirements set by each higher education institution.
