    Red face Scholarship

    "Today I got scholarship to Norway and I'm going to study and live here."

    I'm not sure which is correct "live" or "living, "here" or "there"?
    Thank you for help.

    Re: Scholarship

    Use "live there" unless you are already living in Norway.

    I've never been to Norway. Thank you.

    Another question I should put "a" before scholarship or it is not necessary?

    Yes! The "a" is necessary.

    Or "the" when I write about it for the first time?

    Re: Scholarship

    Both "a" and "the" are correct.
    I would use "the" when speaking/writing to those who know you have applied for a scholarship.

    asphyxia: Today I got a scholarship to Norway.
    friend: Congratulations! I didn't know you had applied to Norway.

    asphyxia: Today I got the scholarship to Norway.
    friend: Congratulations! I knew you had applied to Norway and were waiting for a response.
