Building lasting relationships: Evaluation of the Fulbright Norway subsidy schemeDec 8 2014
NIFU report 2014:45. The Norwegian government should utilize the Fulbright Program to a greater extent to support policy goals for the internationalization of higher education and research. This evaluation has demonstrated that there is more flexibility in the program than the written materials suggest. Interviews with the responsible American partners demonstrated a willingness to construct grants and awards based on the national circumstances. If the Norwegian government so wishes, there is room for closer dialogue with the FFN about the kind of grants that will reinforce common fields of interest for Norwegian policy goals and the visions of the Fulbright Program. This can and should be done without the Norwegian government interfering with the fundamental vision of the Fulbright Program.
