SI Norway is happy to be able to resume the tradition of inviting two sisters from European clubs to come visit us.


If you would like to come see how Soroptimists in Norway are organizing the work locally and share your experience from Soroptimist- activities in your club and union with us, we would love to receive your application!


Two applicants, from different countries, will be selected for the study visit.


The visit has a timeframe for maximum two weeks and must include participation in the annual meeting of SI Norway, on the 15th-17th of September.


The scholarship includes a couple of days stay with a few of our local clubs in the district around Oslo. It culminates with participation in the annual meeting in Hønefoss, Friday 15th to the 17th of September 2023.


The annual meeting takes place at Klækken Hotell, on the outskirt of Hønefoss, and will gather sisters from all over Norway from Friday night to Sunday afternoon.


Dates for arrival and departure, as well as a detailed program for the visit, will be settled together with the selected candidates.

The time frame for the visit is maximum two weeks, but it is possible to organise a visit for a shorter period, if the stay include the dates of the annual meeting.


The scholarship includes:

  • Travel expenses within Norway
  • Stay in private homes when you are visiting the clubs.
  • The hosting club will cover all expenses in connection with your stay with them.

Travel expenses to and from Norway are not included and must be covered by the guests themselves.
