The Board of Directors of Ivalo & Minik Fonden met in March and decided to allocate four 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:
“I would like to praise our contributors for showing great social responsibility through their donations. Without our contributors we would not be able to distribute grants that on the one hand help to fulfill the dreams of young people and on the other hand ensures Greenland a more educated population. For me it is a pure win-win situation for the society as a whole.”
Ivalo & Minik Fonden has since 2014 awarded grants to nearly 40 students
