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 National Scholarship, applicants must: be a Danish Sisterhood member or the child of a Danish Sisterhood member in good standing for a minimum of one year prior to the application deadline; have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale; and be a full time student enrolled in or entering an accredited four-year college or university as a graduate or undergraduate student. This scholarship may be used for study in Denmark upon written request, with the approval of the DSS Scholarship Chair.
