ASF Grants and Awards for Scandinavians
Fellowships/Grants to study in America
The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) offers over $500,000 in funding to Scandinavians to undertake study or research programs (usually at the graduate level) in the United States for up to one year. Candidates for awards are recommended to the ASF by our cooperating organizations. Awards are made in all fields.
The ASF invites U.S. colleges and universities to apply for funding to host a visiting lecturer from Norway or Sweden. The $20,000 awards are for appointments of one semester. Lectureships should be in the areas of: public policy, conflict resolution, health care, environmental studies or multiculturalism.
The American-Scandinavian Foundation / Alcoa Professional Development Program offers two training sessions, Spring and Fall, designed to develop the capacity of Icelanders working on the development, management, and conservation of Iceland’s national parks—both park staff and employees of partner organizations.
The ASF Translation Prize is an international competition for literary translations into English from any Nordic language and genre. Our annual competition recognizes outstanding translations of Scandinavian literature authored by a Scandinavian writer born after 1800. This year marks the 33nd annual competition.
