How to apply

Please find the procedures of application below.

Undergraduate students

All students must apply directly to CAPES.

The call for applications is announced at the Science without Borders' webpage. Please note that all scholarship applications should be submitted to CAPES and not directly to the Norwegian universities.  

The deadline for applications for the academic year 2015-2016 expired on September 29, 2014.

The semester starts in early/mid-August 2015.

All candidates selected by CAPES for studies in Norway will be contacted by SIU in mid-December 2014 to fill in an online application form. The following documents must be provided.

- Transcript of Records (original in Portuguese and a translated version in English)

- TOEFL or IELTS test certificate

- Copy of passport

Please note that the University of Oslo, the Norwegian University of Life Science, the University of Agder, the University of Nordland and the University of Tromsø do not accept TOEFL ITP tests.

Please not that SIU cannot guarantee that all pre-selected candidates will be admitted to an institution. The final decision on admission lies with the Norwegian host institutions.

PhD and postdoc

All PhD and postdoc candidates must have a letter of acceptance from a Norwegian institution in order to be eligible for the Science without Borders scholarship. Please contact the Norwegian university or university college of interest directly to acquire a letter of acceptance. SIU is not involved in the application or selection process.
