International Ibsen Scholarships 2011

The International Ibsen Scholarships were initiated  by the Norwegian government and will be handed out for the 4th  time in 2011.

Scholarship funds amount to 1,000,000 NOK (approx. 125.000 Euro/160.000 US Dollars) will be awarded to Ibsen-related projects worldwide.

We wish for as many relevant applications as possible, from projects throughout the world.

The scholarships are meant to act as incentives for critical discourse in regards to existential and society-related subject matters concerning Henrik Ibsen.

Scholarships are applicable to individuals, organizations or institutions within the artistic and cultural community.

The International Ibsen Scholarships are awarded annually and the applications are subject to scrutiny by an appointed jury.

Previous years, projects from Asia, North-America, Europe, Africa and Australia have received scholarships.

The presentation of the scholarship recipients 2011 is staged in Henrik Ibsen’s city of birth, Skien, Norway on September 19th and 20th and coincides with the Skien International Ibsen Conference.

The application deadline for The International Ibsen Scholarships is April 15th, 2011.

Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
