American-Scandinavian Foundation Fellowships and Grants program for the 2017/18 academic year

The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Fellowships and Grants program for the 2017/18 academic year. We appreciate you notifying qualified candidates about our program.


The deadline for applications is November 1, 2016.


Awards for Research/Study in Scandinavia

The ASF will offer around $300,000 to outstanding American students, scholars, professionals and artists for study and/or research in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden. Fellowships of up to $23,000 are intended to support an academic year-long stay, and priority is given to students at the graduate level who need to spend time at foreign academic or research institutions. Grants of up to $5,000 are considered more suitable for shorter research visits, both on the graduate or post-doctoral level. Funding is available to candidates in all fields.
