Scholarships in Icelandic as a second language.

The Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture awards annually a number of scholarships for studies in Icelandic as a second language at the University of Iceland. In the 2013-2014 academic year, from 1 September 2013 to 30 April 2014, approximately 18 scholarships will be available.

These scholarships are intended for students of modern Icelandic. Students who have completed at least one or two academic years of university study and with some prior knowledge of Icelandic or other Nordic language will be given priority. Preference will, as a rule, be given to a candidate under 35 years of age.

The applications must reach the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies by 1 March, 2013.
