What is the Fulbright Minnesota/Trondheim Exchange?

The University of Minnesota Graduate School has an exchange program with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), whereby one U of M graduate student who has qualified for a Fulbright Scholarship and wishes to study at NTNU will receive additional funding from NTNU. Correspondingly, the University of Minnesota will sponsor a NTNU Fulbright grantee to spend a year at the U of M.

The Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU) is a comprehensive university, but is especially known for its outstanding research and graduate education in technology fields, such as engineering, biotechnology, and renewable energy. For complete information on NTNU and its wide range of offerings, see the NTNU website.

Who Is Eligible? 

Applicants for the Minnesota/Trondheim Exchange Program must be U.S. citizens currently enrolled in a research degree program (Master's or Ph.D.), which can be pursued at NTNU. Knowledge of the Norwegian language is not required, though it is encouraged.

How Do I Apply? 

Students interested in the Minnesota/Trondheim Exchange program should contact the Graduate School Fellowship Office. In addition to completing the online Fulbright application by the August 25, 2021 campus deadline, they should obtain a letter of affiliation from a faculty member at NTNU.
