The committee of the Northern Scholars Scheme, established in 1956, exists to foster co-operation between scholars of Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and colleagues in the University of Edinburgh, in linguistics, historical and other cultural studies which are common to these countries and to Scotland.
In particular the committee sponsors visits by scholars of the member countries to Edinburgh.
The Northern Scholars Scheme is pleased to announce that a 3-year PhD Scholarship supported by the Principal's Fund is now available.
Details of a short programme of lectures for 2012-13 will be announced shortly.
