Fritt Ord Preben Munthe Fellowship

Established in 2013, the Preben Munthe Fellowship for a journalist resident in Norway is sponsored by the Fritt Ord Foundation. The Preben Munthe Fellow will spend two terms in Oxford where they join a diverse group of journalists from other parts of the world. Successful applicants will conduct research related to the business, economic and/or social development of a country or of its media or cultural issues.

He was a professor of Economics at the University of Oslo, chief state mediator, and held a number of directorships in the public sector as well as in business and industry.
