Northern Scholars

The long-standing Northern Scholars Scheme promotes international mobility and co-operation.

The Northern Scholars Scheme was established at the University of Edinburgh 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.

You can find more details about recent lectures by participants in the Northern Scholars Scheme here, and information on how to nominate candidates here.
