The Visiting Scholar Programme is suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights has suspended the Visiting Scholar Programme until further notice.
The NCHR has its own particular Visiting Scholar Programme. Application deadlines are normally twice yearly, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic it is unsure when the next application deadline will be. We will update the information on this website with any pandemic-related changes.
The Programme is currently suspended until further notice. We will discuss a possible re-opening of the program mid-fall 2021, and will post an update when we can open for applications again.
More about the programme
The Programme is open for scholars with a human rights research project.
The duration of each particular visit is subject to discussion.
As a general rule, all visiting scholars are self-funded and are themselves responsible for all matters concerning their own travel and accommodation. When circumstances allow, we may be able to offer some assistance through applying for, and/or supporting an application for University of Oslo accommodation for visiting scholars.
As a visiting scholar through the NCHR programme one is offered:
- A designated personal contact within the NCHR staff of scholars
- A venue to disseminate your own research (and an expectation to do so)
- Access to a open landscape work space if available. The actual number of visitors at any given time varies.
- Access to the University Library
