New call for NSF Nordic Research Opportunity 2012

In 2009 the DNRF entered into a cooperative agreement with the NSF, providing an opportunity for graduate research fellows funded by the NSF to spend up to a year at a DNRF Center of Excellence. The agreement is aimed at strengthening the internationalization of the Centers of Excellence and, at the same time, offering American Ph.D. students the opportunity to obtain international experience in a Nordic research environment of the highest level.

The program, NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Nordic Research Opportunity (NRO) functions as a supplemental grant under the NSF’s Graduate Research Fellow Program, which finances approx. 900-1600 fellowships annually. The program aims to support studies for up to three years, leading to a research-based master’s or Ph.D. degree.
