Application for support for upper secondary education in the Nordic region

This is what you are applying for

Use the application form to apply for a grant for course materials, a housing grant, travel support, additional loans for tuition fees and any loans for those who are over the age of 18.

You may also choose to apply for an income-dependent grant if your family has a strained economic situation. You will be asked during the application process whether you wish to apply.

There is a separate application form available to apply for a grant for tuition fees.


We do not receive information about you from schools or population registers in countries outside of Norway. You therefore need to document that you have been admitted to school, as well as your place of residence if you are living away from home.

If you have to pay tuition fees, you will need to complete the Application for tuition fees  (in Norwegian only) and enclose confirmation of the tuition fees payable to your foreign school.

You will need to submit this documentation after submitting your application for support. You can upload documentation via Dine sider at or send the documentation by regular post.

Processing time

Your case will be processed by a Case Officer and you should expect it to take some time before you receive an answer.

The application is not available on Dine sider immediately, but, if you have received a receipt, we have received your application. You can check estimated procesessing time on Dine sider.

Some can still apply for
