SONF King Olav V Norwegian-American Heritage Fund
King Olav V of Norway gave his permission to the Sons of Norway Foundation to use his name in establishing a fund to be known as the King Olav V Norwegian-American Heritage Fund.
Its purpose is to fund activities in which the American and Norwegian heritages are explored, studied and shared by qualified scholarship recipients. More than $200,000 has been raised by selling medallions and securing gifts from Sons of Norway members.
Any American 18 years of age or older who has demonstrated a keen and sincere interest in the Norwegian heritage and/or any Norwegian 18 years of age or older who has demonstrated an interest in American heritage and who now desires to further the study of their heritages at a recognized educational institution (arts, crafts, literature, history, music, folk-lore, etc.) is eligible to apply for a scholarship. Please note: The King Olav V Norwegian American Heritage Fund receives a large number of applications and only those which fulfill the above eligibility requirements will go to the scholarship committee for consideration.
For more information and to download the application, please visit the Sons of Norway Foundation website.
