Education and Culture

One of the Embassy´s goals is to promote Icelandic culture in the US and strengthen the educational ties between the two countries. The Embassy occasionally hosts cultural events in the Washington D.C. and can act as a facilitator in the cultural exchange between artists.

The Embassy provides information on educational and research opportunities for Americans in Iceland. Currently, around 400 Icelanders are studying in the US, along with a considerable number of researchers.
