The Snorri Sturluson Icelandic Fellowships

The Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies invites applications for the Snorri Sturluson Icelandic Fellowships for 2014. The Fellowships are granted to writers, translators and scholars (not to university students) in the field of humanities from outside Iceland, to enable them to stay in Iceland for a period of at least three months, in order to improve their knowledge of the Icelandic language, culture and society.

In 2013 the Hungarian author, translator and editor Mátyás Dunajcsik was awarded the Snorri Sturluson Icelandic Fellowship to study Icelandic book-publishing, publicise contemporary Icelandic literature in Hungary and to write. Another Hungarian was awarded the Fellowship in 2010 when Imreh András, author and translator from Budapest, worked on translations of Icelandic poetry into Hungarian. In 1997 Dr. Helena Kadecková, university teacher in Prague, enjoyed the Fellowship to write a book on Icelandic medieval history and culture for a Czech publishing house.
