At its most recent meeting, the board of Ivalo & Minik Fonden has awarded four grants to Greenlanders who want to study abroad. The board appreciates that the world is reopening.
“We are really happy that we are once again receiving more applications, and that we once again have the opportunity to help ambitious Greenlanders get out into the world and study. It means a lot to us that we can help fulfill their dreams of a stay abroad, ”says Minik Rosing, Chairman of the Board.
This time, grants of just over DKK 250,000 have been awarded. The distribution of grants is made possible on the basis of donations from the NunaFonden, Royal Greenland, Royal Arctic Line and GrønlandsBANKENs Erhvervsfond.
