Oslo International Summer School Returns to Distance Learning
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oslo International Summer School (OISS) is returning to distance learning for the 2021 session; therefore, the Oslo International Summer School scholarship will not be offered until the OISS re-opens for on-campus learning. Feel free to apply for a scholarship at that time.
Tuition is free at Norway’s public universities, regardless of a student’s citizenship. The fees paid to OISS are administrative and will not be collected in 2021. A few language courses may require a small fee, but that is yet to be determined.
You are cordially invited to apply to the 2021 OISS as a distance learner; qualifying course credits still transfer. North Americans may apply to the OISS at [email protected]. If you have questions, call 507.786.3269 or 800.639.0058.
The Sons of Norway Foundation offers a scholarship to Oslo International Summer School annually for $1,500. The Sons of Norway Foundation general fund supports this opportunity through donations from our generous members, lodges and friends.

- Applicants who are current members of Sons of Norway or children or grandchildren of current Sons of Norway members. Membership must be in effect at least year one calendar year prior to application.
- Those who have a certificate of completion from high school.
- A short autobiography, 150 words or less
