Quota Scheme Funding: The Norwegian Quota Scheme is a funding scheme offered by the Norwegian Government to students from developing countries for studies at institutions of higher education in Norway.

This funding scheme aims at offering specially designed, research-based Master's Degrees taught in English.

The Quota Scheme also offers funding for PhD programmes and a one-year course in advanced Norwegian Language.
