Nordisk Otolaryngologisk Forening (NOLF)/Nordic Association of Otolaryngology wishes to support and develop the inter-Nordic cooperation. There is no better way to achieve this than to support interchange between departments and doctors.
Every 3rd year NOLF therefore awards a fellowship at an ORL department or research unit in a NOLF member state. The stay should not be shorter than 2-month but might be longer.
The objective is to further personal education, skills acquisition and/or research and to promote Nordic cooperation.

The fellowship financially supports expenses during the stay with up to 20.000 euro.
