Author and lecturer visits to institutions of higher learning abroad

APPLICATION DEADLINES: 15 January and 1 August

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.

Travel grants for Norwegian authors and lecturers invited to attend (physical or digital) festivals or conferences abroad

NO FIXED APPLICATION DEADLINE, but at least one month before the event is to take place

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.

Due to the corona situation, it is currently difficult to invite Norwegian authors to international festivals, launches and other events abroad. Foreign publishers, festival organizers and other parties who wish to create digital events with Norwegian authors can therefore apply for support for webinars, podcasts, interviews in the form of film recordings etc. It is also possible to apply for support for advertising and publicity of author and literature programs in digital media.

Please use the standard application form, without filling in travel details.
There is no application deadline.

Books from Norway provides you with English-language information about all genres of Norwegian literature. The information is provided by the rightsholders and NORLA.
