BI Norwegian Scholarship offers a substantial scholarship program for undergraduate studies, but it faces intense competition. Every year, the volume of scholarship applications from candidates significantly surpasses the number of scholarships offered.

Awarded scholarships are tied to a designated academic programme and cannot be transferred. Candidates who have already earned a bachelor’s degree are not given priority for scholarships.
