About the Fulbright Roving Scholar Grant

Established in 1987, the Fulbright Roving Scholars Program brings a unique opportunity for highly skilled American teachers to teach and lead seminars for both students and teachers in Norway. Roving scholars should have experience and interest in secondary education within a variety of American Studies (history, geography, literature, cultural studies, etc.) The Roving Scholars are based in Oslo but spend up to 50% of their time traveling across all of Norway visiting secondary schools, giving training workshops, and participating in conferences. Applicants should have a strong interest in meeting with and teaching teenagers, presenting and practicing innovative pedagogy, and providing information about different aspects of American society.
