Annually The Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies invites applications for the Snorry Sturluson Icelandic Fellowships.
The Fellowships are granted to writers, translators and scholars (not to university students) in the field of humanities, from outside Iceland, to enable them to stay in Iceland for a period of at least three months, in order to improve their knowledge of the Icelandic language, culture and society.
The Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies advertises the Fellowships, handles applications, and assists Fellows during their stay in Iceland, at the conclusion of which Fellows are expected to submit a report to the Institute on how the grant was spent.
The Snorri Sturluson Fellowships are awarded once a year. A special three-man committee, comprising representatives of the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies, the University of Iceland Literary Institute, and the Writers’ Association of Iceland, awards the fellowships.
There are no special application forms for the Fellowships. Applicants should submit a brief but thorough account of the purpose of their stay in Iceland, specifying period of stay, as well as details of education and publications.
