Undergraduates and graduates: Internship and scholarship programmes
Norges Bank offers a variety of internship and scholarship programmes designed for students.
Several of Norges Bank's departments offer short- and long-term internships on a full-time or part-time basis.

Norges Bank's case competition
An annual case competition is arranged by Norges Bank in collaboration with student unions at institutions of higher education in economics. Teams of competing students present their solutions to an economic challenge, and the solutions are assessed by a jury of experts from Norges Bank.
PhD Scholarship Programme
Norges Bank offers a scholarship programme providing funding for Norwegian students wishing to study for a PhD in macroeconomics at a top-ranking university abroad.
In the first part of the programme, you will be employed as a junior researcher at Norges Bank, working on relevant research projects. You will also receive assistance in writing your application.
The scholarships are advertised once a year on our website under Vacancies. The deadline is 1 April. Register your CV to receive an alert when a vacancy is advertised.
