north2north is a network within the University of the Arctic, where universities and colleges around the Arctic Circle cooperate.
The student exchange programme offers scholarships and placements for one or two semesters at one of the program's partner universities in the United States (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Denmark, Finland and Norway.
All students at Stockholm University, regardless of subject, can apply to north2north. However, students who study courses with emphasis on the Northern and Arctic regions are prioritised.
Places you can apply to
Students can apply to all universities within the north2north program. The North American higher education institutions participating in north2north allocate a number of places each year, which means that as a student, you do not need to pay tuition fee.
For more information about this, see section ‘Places to study at a North American university.’

- Places to study at a North American university - Tax exempt: Exchange places at a North American university in Canada and the United States (Alaska) are guaranteed and are distributed among applicants from the four Swedish universities of the north2north program. Locations may vary from year to year.
The scholarship has previously been roughly SEK 19,000 per student. We prioritise cooperation with North American universities, but can grant scholarships to all countries (though with smaller scholarship sums). The Swedish Institute that funds the scholarship programme makes the final selection.
How to apply
The applications will open in the beginning of November and will run until 15 January. Please note that the locations available for exchange will vary from year to year.

Participant of the Korea Arctic Academy 2017
"I study political science and I am very interested in the Arctic and its future. The main reason why the Arctic is an interesting region is its great importance for the regional and global climate. The Arctic is also interesting because of the impact the melting ice has on regional and global politics and economy."
