The admission process is quite simple. Send in the filled out application form with documents according to the list below.
After the application is received, we will send an initial reply. When all the documentation is received, you will be contacted to organize a time for a Skype interview. The applications will be reviewed in order of submission. However, to put together a student group for the year, we generally evaluate the applications after the application deadline on May 17. You will receive an answer from the school committee no later than May 31.

Most of the program at Matteson is sponsored by people who recognize its value and donate to the Granheim Foundation, which, in turn, sponsors the students.
Due to the expensive country we are situated in, the program costs about 100’000 NOK (approx. 11’000 Euros) per student. Rather than asking for school fees of this amount, we request the students’ full attention, their time and talents, and a determination to complete the program.
Full time students who complete the school year are supported by the Granheim Foundation with a scholarship of 71’000 NOK (approx. 7’700 Euros). By sponsoring tuition, room and board in Norway, we want to set an example for young people to give, as Jesus freely gave us salvation.
The students are asked to contribute with 29’000 NOK* (approx. 3’200 Euros) to the Matteson student fund. This covers expenses related to the mission internship, mission trips, travels, events, accessories and also contributes to the alumni support fund.
