The High North Fellowship program offers scholarships to students from Canada, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the US who attend an institution in Northern Norway as part of their higher education. The program is funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Each fellowship recipient receives a monthly stipend of approximately NOK 9 440, and a travel grant of the same amount. Institutions of higher education in Norway do not charge tuition from international students, and the stipend is intended to cover housing and living expenses. The program is mainly targeted at students at the master’s and bachelor’s level, but is also open to PhD students.
