Purpose
The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) offers fellowships (up to $23,000) and grants (normally $5,000) to individuals to pursue research or study in one or more Scandinavian country (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden) for up to one year.
Main Eligibility Requirements
U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents Only
Other Eligibility Requirements
Applicants must have a well-defined research, study or creative arts project that makes a stay in Scandinavia essential.
Applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents.
Applicants must have completed their undergraduate education by the start of their project in Scandinavia.
Team projects are eligible, but each member must apply as an individual, submitting a separate, fully-documented application.
First priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received an ASF award. Only in exceptional cases will a third award be considered.

The ASF considers it desirable that all candidates have at least some ability in the language of the host country, even if it is not essential for the execution of the research plan.

For projects that require a command of one or more Scandinavian (or other) languages, candidates should defer application until they have the necessary proficiency.
