The American-Scandinavian Foundation, http://www.amscan.org/, is the
leading cultural and educational link between the United States and
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. An American nonprofit
organization headquartered in New York City, ASF works to build
international understanding with an extensive program of fellowships,
grants, intern/trainee sponsorship, publishing, and membership offerings.
The foundation's 2011-12 awards program will provide over $1 million
in total funding to outstanding American and Scandinavian students,
scholars, professionals, and artists.
Fellowships of up to $23,000 are intended to support an academic
year-long stay, and priority is given to students at the graduate
level who need to spend time at foreign academic or research
institutions. Grants starting from $5,000 are available for shorter
research visits, both at the graduate and post-doctoral levels.
