The grant is NOK 4,000 per month, or NOK 44,000 for an entire academic year if you have support for eleven months. If you are studying part time, the grant is based on the number of credits you will be taking.
In order to be entitled to the grant, you must be able to study but unable to work besides your studies, because this will have a negative impact on your academic progress. A physician or specialist must confirm this in the application.
You may not have any salaried employment at all as long as you receive the additional grant. If you are doing voluntary or unpaid work beside your studies, you can still receive the grant.
