The Quota Scheme was implemented by the Ministry of Education and Research in the autumn 1994 as a Norwegian Governmental Assistance Scheme to promote capacity building in the students’ home countries and encourage participation from these countries in the process of internationalization of higher education. The Quota Scheme covers living expenses while studying in Norway, travel allowances according to fixed national rates at minimum student costs and support to cover field work in the student’s home country as part of the study in Norway.
