Scholarship

The Finnish American Heritage Society Scholarship Fund was started in November, 2000.  Since then, we have awarded numerous scholarships to students who are motivated to perpetuate the mission of FAHS.  The primary purpose of the Scholarship is to perpetuate Finnish-American heritage through support of related educational initiatives.  These can be related to, but not limited to, music, the arts, health, education, the environment, and architecture or engineering.  The Scholarship Committee does not discriminate based on age, gender, ethnicity, nationality, belief, or any other conditions.  Scholarships will continue to be awarded annually.  We greatly appreciate ongoing donations to this important fund to ensure it will continue “in perpetuity.” Our current endowment balance is over $20,000.  The committee invites candidates to apply, with the deadline of June 30, 2017.  The awards are presented in the
fall.  Members and their families are eligible.

 

Anyone who has been awarded a scholarship is asked to wait at least a year before re-applying, to give others a turn.  We now have three awards:  The General Scholarship, the Korsu  Family Athletic Scholarship, and the Karla Tate Creative Scholarship. The procedure for application is on this form.  If you have questions, please call Ann Gruenberg, Chair, Scholarship Committee at 860-455-1211.
