Royal Greenland. Royal Arctic Line. NunaFonden. The BANK of Greenland’s Business Fund. Financial contributions from these companies and foundations are the reason why Ivalo & Minik Fonden is once again able to support Greenlanders with educational aspirations

It’s great that so many people want to improve their dream education away from the familiar and safe environment in Greenland and Denmark,” says Minik Rosing, chairman of the board of Ivalo & Minik Fonden. He continues:

“This time we are giving grants to Greenlanders who want to study in countries such as the Netherlands, England and Australia. We hope that they all learn a lot and that they will come back home to Greenland and use their skills.”
