The Norwegian Latin America Research Network (NorLARNet) was established in 2008. The network is aimed at establishing a permanent environment for the strengthening of knowledge about Latin America in Norway.  It will award a scholarship of 4,000 kroner per month for a period of 10 months (second semester 2016 and first semester 2017) to a student enrolled at an academic institution in the Oslo area who will write a master thesis on a topic that is related to Latin America. The student will be given office space at the Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM) at the University of Oslo.

The student will be selected according to quality of master thesis outline, grades received at bachelor level, language skills (English/Spanish/Portuguese) and other qualifications (work experience, etc.). The recipient of the scholarship will be expected to assist with tasks related to seminars and information activities conducted by NorLARNet, and is hence expected to be present at SUM during most of the scholarship period. The recipient should also write an article addressed to the general public based on his/her research.
