About the American-Scandinavian Foundation
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 (up to $5,000) or a fellowship (up to $23,000), but not both. Postgraduate scholars, professionals, and candidates in the creative 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.
