$1,000 to $1,500 annually, non-renewable. Checks will be made payable jointly to each recipient and his/her institution, and must be endorsed by both. Students may reapply, but may receive no more than two scholarships within a five-year period.
The scholarship committee will determine the number of scholarships/grants to be awarded each year. Last year, eight scholarships were given.
King Olav V of Norway gave his permission to the Sons of Norway Foundation to use his name in establishing a fund to be known as the "King Olav V Norwegian-American Heritage Fund". Its purpose is to fund activities in which the American and Norwegian heritages are explored, studied and shared by qualified scholarship recipients. Endowment money has been raised by selling medallions and securing gifts from Sons of Norway members. Award decisions are based upon the following criteria: essay; academic potential/grade transcripts; benefit to Sons of Norway and wider Norwegian/American community; involvement in school and community activities; letters of recommendation; and financial need. Final selection of the scholarship winners will be made by a scholarship committee appointed by the President of the Sons of Norway Foundation. Notification of the award will be made within 10 weeks of deadline.
The application deadline date has not yet been finalized for this year, but is expected to remain the same as last year. The deadline date shown here is tentative based on last year's date. Please che ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
