Scholarship Programmes for Master and PhD at University of Oslo, Norway

The Norwegian government offers some scholarship programmes for international students interested in studying in Norway. Please note that these scholarships are only available for postgraduate students on the master and Ph.D. levels, and are very competitive. See below for more information about these programmes. There are no scholarships available for bachelor degree students.

Also, grants and scholarships may be available through short-term mobility programmes. Usually, these are grants that are awarded automatically if you are admitted to the programme. For more information about this, please see our web page for exchange programmes and bilateral agreements.

If you are not qualified for any of these scholarships, you may be eligible for other scholarships offered by public or private institutions in your home country. Unfortunately, the University of Oslo is unable to help you with information about this.

The Quota Scheme
Only students at institutions with a cooperation agreement with the University of Oslo and from selected countries are eligible to apply. Places are limited and extremely competitive.

The Norwegian Government Scholarships
Only postgraduate students from selected countries may apply. Applications must be directed to the Research Council of Norway. Please note that these scholarships are intended to fund short-term studies or research only, and cannot be used to finance a full degree.

NORAD’s Programme for Master Studies (NOMA)
This is a scholarship programme offered to students from certain developing countries and limited to selected programmes. NOMA replaces the former Norad Fellowship Programme(NFP).

Scholarships through the EEA Financial Mechanisms Programme
Study abroad scholarships for students from selected countries in Eastern and Southern Europe.
