Guys and Girls! Don’t even bother to apply to this University. They accentuate the of being an international institution, when in fact you’ll see mostly Norwegian last name who get the fellowships. If you have a Norwegian last name you have plenty of chances. It is also very hard to deal with the admin people. It takes ages for them to get back to you, or as it happent to me once, they responded after the deadline passed.
So good luck to all!
You are right david! It happent to me too. They don’t even read all research proposals! ….but doesn’t hurt trying… who knows?
This is so true! They did not even read my research proposal. I developed it as part of my course work, with one of the best , well-known American professors, from a reputable university. We made sure that it followed all guidelines and matched their research interests and guess what? I got a big NO a few days after the deadline closed. Let’s put it this way, if this gentleman, who has a big name is “Linguistics” does not know how to write a proposal, then who does?
So, you can draw the conclusions. University of Oslo has its own internal system of distribution of scholarships! You need the right NETWORK!
