The Fulbright Commission of Iceland has signed an agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States guaranteeing 550,000 USD over the next three years to support US scientists’ Arctic research in Iceland.

The agreement is the first of its kind between any Fulbright Commission and the NSF and was signed at the Icelandic Embassy in Washington D.C. with Evan Ryan, the United States’ Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs, and Geir H. Haarde, Iceland’s Ambassador to the US.

The Fulbright Commission and National Science Foundation hope the agreement will create new opportunities for collaboration between Icelandic and American scholars and strengthen Arctic research in Iceland and the US.
