First off, you need to make a list about why you want to go to Norway and what you hope to achieve while in country. No one, your parents or otherwise, is going to give you $ 10,000 or any significant sum to simply vegetate in a classroom with a different view out the window! Therefore, you need to make a convincing case about why you should deserve financial aid. If I were you, after I did #1, I would do the following things: 2. Consider widening your scope (Perhaps Scandinavia or Northern Europe) to open up more opportunities for research grants or cultural study scholarships 3. Come up with something original (i.e. studying Medieval Icelandic texts for a scholarly research dissertation- they chronicled the reign of ancient Norwegian royalty) to sell potential patrons/sponsors on. Also, Talk to people in the community about scholarship opportunities for foreign exchange and look ahead to college which- this is the Gospel truth- have much deeper pockets to put kids through self-styled study abroad trips. Hope this helps and good luck!

Norway has very high immigration controls – and I’m pretty sure that unless you’re trying to escape persecution in your own country, they won’t let you in without speaking a decent level of Norweigan.
And they’re not part of the European Union either.
