Scholarships at the ISS

ISS offers a number of scholarships and grants. This is part of the University of Oslo’s goal to demonstrate academic solidarity and ensure that our summer school represents global diversity. Read our full scholarship policy.

Since our funds are limited, competition for ISS scholarships is very tough. The ISS only offers scholarships for applicants to the International Summer School, not applicants to all year programmes at the University of Oslo.

Scholarship criteria

To be a successful ISS scholarship recipient, you must demonstrate:

  • That you meet the academic requirements
  • A strong academic record
  • The relevance of your academic and/or professional background to the course you apply for in your statement of purpose (see course descriptions for more information)

Who cannot, on a general basis, apply for scholarships:

  • Applicants to ISSN0110 Intensive Elementary Norwegian, Level I
  • Former recipients of an ISS scholarship
  • Persons who have a residence permit in Norway or another Nordic country who are not currently programme students at UiO
