The Fritt Ord Student Scholarships

In collaboration with a number of Norwegian universities and university colleges, the Fritt Ord Foundation offer scholarships for students who are working on master’s theses and documentary films in fields such as human rights, journalism, freedom of expression and democracy building.

Applications should be sent directly to the relevant faculties. Application deadlines vary, but are often set for sometime during the month of October.

The call for applications is located on the websites of the respective institutions, but feel free to contact Fritt Ord for more information about the scholarship applicable to you.

Norwegian students who are not affiliated with any of the universities/university colleges on the list, but who are working on master’s theses of particular relevance to Fritt Ord’s objectives, may apply for support to Fritt Ord directly through the ordinary grants system. See her for information about deadlines and processing times. The application should contain a thorough project description, budget, transcript of academic records and a recommendation from a supervisor or other professionals.
