The Danish Sisterhood of America is very proud of its Scholarship and Grants Programs, which are available to members of the Danish Sisterhood and their children, regardless of age. Our scholarships and grants are made possible through generous endowments and memorial funds and are being supplemented by donations from individual members, lodges, and districts of the National Sisterhood. No membership dues are used to support these scholarships.
To be eligible for the Betty Hansen Continuing Education/Cultural-Heritage Grant, applicants must be enrolled less than half-time at one of the following: an educational, accredited, or approved school; in a course, workshop, or seminar; or in a seminar or language class relating to our Danish culture/heritage. The two deadlines for the scholarship are January 31 and August 31. Awards will be mailed in February and September, respectively. Dollar amounts will vary, and deadlines will also differ (as this is offered twice a year).
