We hereby invite you to submit your application for admission to the Research Fellowship Programme in 2017.
The Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme is intended to qualify candidates for artistic work, teaching and research positions in higher art education and for other work in society that demands a high level of artistic expertise and insight. The nominal length of study for the Research Fellowship Programme is three (3) years of full-time study where an independent artistic project of a high standard with national and international relevance to the subject area is central.
The application is written using the Programme’s application form and sent to one of the Norwegian institutions affiliated to the Programme. The Board of the Programme is responsible for a joint admission procedure based on national competition in which high quality of projects is emphasised. Endeavours are also made to achieve a reasonable allocation of research fellowships between genders, different disciplines and participating institutions over time. The Board makes decisions about the allocation of the positions available based on the applications, documentation and the institutions’ priorities. The criteria are found in the Guidelines Section 5.
The application process is split in two. The application is written using the Programme’s application form and sent to one of the Norwegian institutions of higher education affiliated to the Programme by 1 December 2016. The institutions will make a selection, and then submit the selected applications to the Programme Board by 21 April 2017. Requirements for applications are described in the Guidelines and in the Application Procedure.
