Master's & PhD

GRÓ LRT offers scholarships to former fellows, who have completed the six-month training programme, to pursue graduate studies at Icelandic universities in land restoration and related subjects. The provision of scholarships for graduate studies in Iceland is a means to increase academic and research capacity, and research outputs in partner countries.

Scholarship candidates must fulfil the entrance criteria and be accepted by GRÓ LRT’s partner universities in Iceland. The postgraduates are expected to relate their research to their home institutions or home countries and, where possible, conduct part of the research in their home country. This further strengthens the academic environment and supports institutional capacity development at the country level.
