Six ambitious Greenlanders have received grants from Ivalo & Minik Fonden to study abroad. The total distribution amounts to slightly more than DKK 350,000.
In the latest distribution round, Ivalo & Minik Fonden is approaching 60 grants awarded to Greenlanders who have chosen to study outside the Commonwealth
“We are happy every time we give out a grant. It is our experience that our grants make a big difference to the students being able to excel in their dream education. And that we are now close to having awarded 60 grants in our lifetime, I am just proud of,” says Minik Rosing, chairman of Ivalo & Minik Fonden’s board. He continues:
“In this connection, I would like to express a big thank you to Royal Greenland, Royal Arctic Line, NunaFonden and GrønlandsBANKENs Erhvervsfond, who contribute financial support every year so that we can distribute grants.”
The board of Ivalo & Minik Fonden meets twice a year to distribute grants, and Minik Rosing hopes to receive many and well-qualified applications for the next distribution, where the deadline for applications is 15 February 2023.
