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
