The Fulbright Hildeman Fellowship

PROMOTING SCANDINAVIAN STUDIES IN THE U.S.

In 1986, the Swedish Fulbright Commission established the Hildeman Fellowship in commemoration of Mr. Nils-Gustav Hildeman, a prominent Swedish diplomat and former Fulbright Board member, to promote the study of Scandinavian language and area studies in the United States. The primary objectives of the Hildeman Fellowship are to encourage students and faculty in Scandinavian studies, to strengthen contacts between Swedish and American academics and to increase the interest in Sweden and Swedish area studies on the part of American students and scholars in a variety of fields.

Each year, a different U.S. university is selected to the host the Fulbright Fellow. The Fellowship is for one academic semester at the selected U.S. university. For Spring semester 2020, the Hildeman Fellow will be hosted by the University of Washington, Seattle.
