The board of Ivalo & Minik Fonden has at its board meeting in October decided to award three grants to Greenlandic students who wishes to study abroad in Sweden, South Korea and England respectively. The grants are 100 percent financed on the basis of donations from Royal Arctic Line A/S, Royal Greenland A/S, GrønlandsBANKEN’s Erhvervsfond and NunaFonden.
The chairman of the board, Minik Rosing, says:
“First and foremost, I would like to congratulate the grant recipients. I am sure that they are all worthy representatives of Greenland. In addition, I would like to thank our contributors for showing great social responsibility through their donations. Without these contributions, we in Ivalo & Minik Fonden would not be able to award grants that, on the one hand, help to fulfill young people’s dreams and at the same time help to ensure Greenland an increasing level of education, a better knowledge of Greenland abroad in the world and strengthen Greenland’s knowledge of the world. It is for me to see a pure win-win situation for the society as a whole.”
Since 2014 Ivalo & Minik Fonden has awarded grants to just under 50 students.
