Fellowships for Americans

Fellowships for Americans in the Nordic Countries

Deadline: November 1, 2024

ASF’s award program for study and research abroad has been the Foundation’s most long-standing commitment to educational exchange. During the past 100 years, over 4,000 fellowships and grants have been given to Americans in the Nordic region (Denmark, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sámpi, and Sweden) and Scandinavians in the US engaged in study, research, or creative arts projects.


In 2024, 24 American Fellows were granted over $269,705 in total funding.
