OPEN CALL Dec 14th–Feb 15th: Scholarship

Do you want to arrange a forest workshop? Or participate in an exciting conference? Are you dreaming about a certain study visit but never had the opportunity? SNS and NordGen Forest today open up for applications for a scholarship.


The scholarship seeks to encourage education and knowledge exchange within forest genetics, seed access and rejuvenation of forests. The grant can be used for travel expenses but also to cover costs related to essays at bachelor- or masterlevel, equipment, laboratory and print expenses.

The activity must be relevant in a Nordic context and contribute to Nordic benefit.

We strive for gender balance in the selection process.

A total sum of 100 000 NOK is to be distributed. Each applicant can be granted a maximum of 20 000 NOK.

Application for the scholarship is accepted from December 14th 2018 until February 15th 2019. In April 2019 the scholarship holders are to be announced.

The forest scholarships are distributed by NordGen (Nordic Genetic Resource Centre) and SNS (Nordic Forest Research).
