The University offers PhD scholarships every year (deadline usually 15 January). Scholarships are offered by two funds: The Eimskip University Fund and the University's own Research Fund. They have joint deadlines and application forms. Scholarships are for salaries and can be up to a maximum of three years. Further information on scholarships at the university are available here.
The Icelandic Research Fund has among its objectives to fund PhD students (since the Icelandic Research Fund for Graduate Students was joined with the Icelandic Research Fund). Further information is available here.
Frequently PhD students are funded partly or fully as partners in research projects. Information on grants offered by the University are available here.
PhD students can get assistance from the Centre for Research in the Humanities to find grants and scholarships and in writing funding applications.
