Norway Scholarship Scam

There’s a message circulating on social media platforms in Sri Lanka purporting a fully funded scholarship program offered by the government of Norway.

It is noted that the message has been shared hundreds of times by Sri Lankan WhatsApp users, including people of high authorities.

The content of the message claims enormous scholarship benefits ranging from full tuition fee, living allowance, accommodation, medical facilities, and traveling allowance to unlimited study permits.

According to the information in circulation, the scholarship application is available through the link

The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Norway has verified from the University of Oslo about the scholarships & its benefits, and it has informed that it is a fake advertisement. Hence, the students are requested to check the official University websites for any scholarship opportunities in Norway before applying.
