Grants to Iceland

Iceland is considered a relatively safe country of great natural beauty. English is widely spoken around the country and in academia. There are exciting opportunities in a wide variety of fields both for students and scholars. The Fulbright Commission views its grantees as family. We offer monthly enrichment activities and are here to help our grantees make the most of their stay.

Fulbright Iceland is committed to increasing the accessibility of the Fulbright experience for grantees with diverse needs. The Bruce A. Fowler Mobility Fund provides funding to US Fulbright scholars to Iceland with a disability that leads to additional costs that are not covered specifically through the Fulbright Program.
