At its latest meeting, Ivalo & Minik Fonden’s board of directors awarded grants worth over DKK 250,000 to five students
Ivalo & Minik Fonden was founded to provide grants to Greenlandic students who want to improve their skills abroad. The spring board meeting has just been held, and grants have been awarded to five students who will be studying in Norway, Malta, USA, England and Iceland.
Chairman of the board Minik Rosing states:
“It is always great to help ensure that ambitious people’s dreams come true. I hope and wish that the grant recipients get some really good educational stays.”
The reason why Ivalo & Minik Fonden can distribute grants is based on generous donations from Royal Greenland, Royal Arctic Line, the BANK of Greenland’s Business Foundation and NunaFonden.
Ivalo & Minik Fonden will award grants again in autumn 2023. The deadline for applications is 1 October 2023.
