The ASF's award program for study and research abroad has been the Foundation's most long-standing commitment to educational exchange. During the past 100 years, over 4,000 fellowships and grants have been given to Americans and Scandinavians engaged in study, research or creative arts projects.

Terms of Award:

Projects should not begin before April 15th, following the decision announcement date.

Grants are considered especially suitable for post-graduate scholars, professionals, and candidates in the arts to carry out research or study visits of one to three months duration.

Fellowships are intended to support a year-long stay. Priority is given to candidates at the graduate level for dissertation-related study or research.

The awards support project-related costs, including maintenance, trans- Atlantic round-trip travel, in-country travel, tuition and fees (where applicable) and materials expenditures (e.g., books, photocopying, art supplies).

ASF awards may require supplementation from other sources, but they should not duplicate the benefits of additional awards (and vice versa). Candidates must notify the ASF if they have received other award offers. The ASF will not provide funds if, in its judgment, a proposal can be carried out without its assistance.
