FNI seeks contact with master students

FNI seeks contact with students planning to write their master thesis on a topic within one of FNI's focus areas:
   Global environmental governance and law
   Climate change
   Law of the Sea and marine affairs
   Biodiversity and genetic resources
   Arctic and Russian politics
   European energy and environmental politics
   Chinese energy and environmental politics

For students writing theses on subjects that are deemed particularly relevant, FNI may offer (subject to approval of application) a scholarship scheme, including very modest economic support. The scheme is most typically applied for a period of 3-6 months, with a maximum limit of 12 months.


Students who apply must meet all the following basic requirements:
     Must have a working knowledge of Norwegian language.
     Must have a valid residence permit in Norway (FNI can not assist with this).
     Must have a place to live in the Oslo area (FNI can not assist with this).
     Must have own economic means (as FNI's modest economic support only covers a small part of the high living costs in Norway).

Please also note that scholarship holders must write their thesis at FNI. No scholarship can be given to students not physically present at FNI during the writing period.

If you meet all the requirements above, and are interested in applying for the scholarsip scheme, please go on and read the more detailed description in Norwegian.

 The Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI) is an independent foundation engaged in research on international environmental, energy, and resource management politics and law.
The Institute maintains a multi-disciplinary approach, with main emphasis on political science, economics, and international law.
