NORLA administrates the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ scheme for travel grants for authors and lecturers who will visit institutions of higher learning abroad where instruction is given in the Norwegian language.
The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ funding programme for development cooperation – Field of Literature
As of January 1, 2018, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has withdrawn funding for the 03 grant (i.e. to support partners in the field of literature in developing countries). NORLA therefore no longer offers support through the 03 scheme
NORLA has been commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to administrate a limited annual amount to be allocated to Norwegian authors and lecturers who have been invited to festivals or conferences abroad.
