Shuling Chen Lillemo
PhD students have several possibilities for financing their studies:
- Stipendiat postions: The School of Economics and Business get funds from the Department of Education to employ 1-2 new PhD students every year for a 3-4 year period. When vacant, these positions are announced here.
- Quota scholarships: This is a government-sponsored programme for students from developing countries (and Eastern Europe outside the EU). Most of the current PhD students from developing countries are quota students. More information about quota programme. One scholarship is available with application deadline August 15, 2012. more information here
- Project support: Some students are funded through research or development projects. Among the current students this has two forms: (a) PhD students that are part of development aid projects supported by NORAD or other development agencies and (b) PhD students that are attached to research projects, typically funded by the Norwegian Research Council. These positions are announced here when available.
- Self-financed or other sources of funding: Note that developing country students have to document their financial support in advance to the Norwegian immigration authorities.
The application procedure consists of two steps. First, there is a semi-formal procedure to have your PhD proposal accepted by a supervisor. If accepted, the applicant and supervisor will jointly prepare an application for the formal enrolment into the PhD programme (within six months after commencing on the programme).
