Grímsson Fellowship: Open for new applications until May 1 st.

Grímsson Fellowships are open to scientists, researchers, experts, scholars and writers of any nationality. The fellows are invited to stay in the House of Grímur in the historic town of Ísafjörður, the capital of the beautiful Westfjords region in Iceland. In addition to the free stay, the Fellowship includes travel to and from Iceland, as well as a stipend contribution towards living cost.

The international program is initiated by and within the auspices of the new Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson Center, founded in late 2021 at the instigation of the Government of Iceland to honour the international legacy of President Grímsson who is the founding father of Arctic Circle. He remains the longest-serving President of Iceland; from 1996-2016. The fellowships are based on participation by the University of Iceland, University of Akureyri, Reykjavík University, the University Center of the Westfjords and the biotechnology company Kerecis, which originates in Ísafjörður. The office of the Fellowship is in the Arctic Circle Secretariat.
