Grant of the Week: American-Scandinavian Fund Grants and Fellowships

Sadie Bergen | Aug 19, 2016

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring grants from the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF).
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.

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.

Online application and further ASF Award information available at www.amscan.org.

The ASF also awards fellowships and grants to Scandinavians. These are made on the recommendation of ASF’s cooperating organizations abroad, with each country setting its own deadline. Contact information for the ASF’s cooperating organizations in Scandinavia can be found on the ASF website.

For more information, contact Carl Fritscher (Interim Director, Fellowships & Grants) at grants@amscan.org.
