The Snorri Sturluson Icelandic Fellowships

The Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies invites applications for the Snorri Sturluson Icelandic Fellowships for 2010. 

The Fellowships are granted to writers, translators and scholars (not to university students) in the field of humanities from outside Iceland, to enable them to stay in Iceland for a period of at least three (3) months, in order to improve their knowledge of the Icelandic language, culture and society.

The amount of Fellowship is based in the principles on travel expenses to and from Iceland, plus living expenses while in the country. Should two equally-qualified candidates be under consideration, preference will, as rule, be given to a candidate from Eastern or Southern Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin Alerica or Oceania.

The Árni Magnússonar Institute for Icelandic Studies assists Fellows during their stay in Iceland, at the conclusion of which Fellows are expected to submit a report to the Institute on how the grant was spent.

There is no special application form for the Fellowships. Applicants should submit a brief but thorough account of the purposeof their stay in Iceland, specifying period of stay, as well as details of education and publications.

Applications should be sent by ordinary mail (no e-mail application) not later than 31 October 2009 to:
