The Board of Directors of Ivalo & Minik Fonden met in March and decided to allocate three grants for a total value of just over 300,000 kroner. The grants will help to ensure that the three students can have their dream of studying abroad fulfilled. The grants are 100% financed on the basis of donations from Royal Arctic Line A/S, Royal Greenland A/S, GrønlandsBANKEN’s Erhvervsfond and NunaFonden.
Chairman of the Board Minik Rosing states:
“Like every other country, Greenland needs skilled people, and I am therefore pleased that we have the opportunity to contribute to this in the form of grants. In this regard, I would like to thank our contributors who through their donations demonstrate a major social responsibility to contribute to raising the level of education in Greenland. ”
Frederik Bork Jansen has been given a grant to study a semester of his master at Monash University in Australia in connection with his studies in technical science at DTU.
Inga Hansen has been awarded a grant to study a Master’s degree in journalism about indigenous peoples at Sami University in Norway.
Winnie Filemonsen has been given a grant for studying at Duke University in North Carolina, USA, in connection with her education in translation and interpretation at Ilisimatusarfik.
Ivalo & Minik Fonden continues to hand out grants. The next application deadline is 1 October 2018. The Board looks forward to receive many good applications.
