MA student grants
Through the student scholarships ARENA offers a workspace, supervision and 20.000 NOK for MA students writing a thesis within our research field. The 2020 deadline is 20 September.
About the student scholarships
ARENA offers grants from October and until the end of the academic year. Successful applicants are expected to submit their MA thesis during the Spring term. Students enrolled in a Master’s programme within the social sciences, law and the humanities are eligible to apply.
ARENA affiliated students become part of the academic collegium. The students will be offered a workspace at ARENA’s new premises in the Nemko building next to the Oslo Science Park (Forskningsparken) and are expected to participate in relevant joint activities at the centre.
Students can choose to apply for the following ARENA student grants:
- EU3D grants on European integration and democracy
- PLURISPACE grant on European and Norwegian integration policy and civil society
Having an ARENA researcher as your (co-)supervisor is a requirement. In order to ensure that your project overlaps with ARENA’s research interests, you are encouraged to contact the relevant researcher(s) when preparing your project proposal.
The grant amounts to NOK 20,000 (10,000 is transferred at the beginning of the period, the final 10,000 is paid upon the MA thesis’ completion).
