Norwegian-Russian Scholarship Scheme 2015-16

Introduction

This announcement of scholarships is based of the Agreement between the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research and the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, dated 27th April 2010.

Norwegian scholarship schemes are normally closely tied to institutional collaboration, preferably with strong linkage between cooperation in research and education. Since the Ministry of Education and Research cannot instruct the institutions to accept a candidate within a specific field, this scheme is based on pre-agreements with defined institutions. The institutions retain their right not to accept a specific candidate.

The total amount of available student grants annually is 30, 15 within Norwegian language and literature, 15 within other subjects. Admission of a student for a two-year programmeimplies that the student is counted as grant recipient for two years, reducing the number of available grants the following year.

As acceptance of individual students cannot be guaranteed, it is suggested that the Russian Ministry of Education and Science recommends at least 20 students for language studies and 20 students for other studies, from which the grant recipients can be selected.

Grants are offered at the following institutions:

  • Narvik University College

  • Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences

  • UiT The Arctic University of Norway

  • University of Bergen

  • University of Nordland

  • University of Oslo

 

 

 

Norwegian language and literature (Article 3)

The Kingdom of Norway will offer up to 15 grants annually. Depending on the number of qualified applicants, some flexibility can be shown in the distribution of language student grants, within the total of 15.
