Top: Education, research, culture: Sources of financing for exchange students/researchers (7)
For example, many Russian graduate and PhD students finance their studies in Norway through the Quota program (the standard Norwegian educational loan, waived when the foreign student returns to his/her home country). This scholarship can be only obtained directly from a Norwegian university or college participating in the program.
Similarly, there is no special fund offering academic positions to foreigners. Some Russians that make their PhD on stipendiat positions, getting a decent salary instead of scholarship, or work on permanent positions at universities. They seeked job offers on their own and competed on par with the Norwegian applicants.
