NRF Fellowship Program

The NRF coordinates a fellows program that supports Arctic research and other Arctic-related activities that are carried out at the University of Akureyri. The Fellows are committed to the NRF and give visibility to the NRF and its activities, at the University of Akureyri and in the international science community.

The NRF Fellowship Program consists of three categories: 1) Academic Fellows are senior researchers, post-doctoral researchers, and PhD candidates, 2) Senior Fellows are experienced and respected state and local government practitioners, as well as distinguished international civil society, business, and indigenous leaders, 3) Junior Fellows are undergraduate and graduate students of UNAK, or those on internships visiting the university.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, as they are received. The NRF Fellowship program recognizes outstanding academic achievements as well as other achievements and activities valued by the wider society. Qualified candidates may be eligible for Fellowship status based on selection criteria.
