ATTENTION! STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS
To qualify for any of the ten $1,500 scholarships offered by DHS and two scholarships from the estate of Ruth and Johannes Pedersen ($2400 paid to each of the two top students), you must meet the following criteria:
a) Be of Danish heritage and/or family member of a past or present member (name please for verification) of the Danish House Society. If you are not of Danish heritage you may still qualify if you are a member or connected through family to a member of the Danish House Society. Please note: The membership in the Danish House Society must have taken effect at least one year prior to your scholarship application.
b) Be a resident of British Columbia working towards a degree or diploma in an accredited post-secondary institution. Evidence of registration in such an institution is required along with a transcript of latest marks and studies.
c) Be of good character and provide written references from a high school or college administrator, and at least two current references including an employer, if applicable.
Application should be made by a hand-written letter giving your reasons for requesting the scholarship and describing your personal interests, hobbies, goals, dreams, financial need, and volunteer experience. Participation as a volunteer in Danish House Society activities should be noted. All of the Scholarships will be awarded at the September 3, 2021 Kroaften at the Scandinavian Centre depending upon the lifting of current government pandemic restrictions on gatherings.
