Long Term Projects – The Freedom of Expression Foundation's Student Research Grants

The Fritt Ord Foundation’s Student Grants

In collaboration with a number of Norwegian universities and university colleges, the Fritt Ord Foundation calls for applications for grants for students who are working on master's theses and documentary films in fields such as human rights, journalism, freedom of expression and democracy building. The call for applications is located on the websites of the respective institutions, but feel free to contact Fritt Ord for more information about the grant applicable to you.

Applications should be sent directly to the relevant faculties. Application deadlines vary, but are often set for sometime during the month of October.
