Northern Scholars Lectures

The committee of the Northern Scholars Scheme was established in 1956.

It exists to foster co-operation between scholars of Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and colleagues in the University of Edinburgh, in aspects of linguistics, and 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.
