The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) promotes international understanding through educational and cultural exchange between the U.S. and Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
Applications may be made for either a grant ($5,000) or a fellowship (up to $23,000), but not both. Postgraduate scholars, professionals, and candidates in the arts intending to carry out research or study visits of one to three months in duration are especially encouraged to apply for grants. Fellowships are intended to support a year-long stay. Priority for fellowships is given to candidates at the graduate level for dissertation-related study or research.
Awards are open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Criteria for award selection includes, but is not limited to: the significance and feasibility of the proposal, the qualifications of the applicant to pursue the program, and the special merit of pursuing the program in Scandinavia. Language competence (as necessary) and evidence of a confirmed invitation or affiliation are also considered.
