Welcome to the Scandinavian Community Centre


Finland House Society



Finland House Society established a scholarship program in 2012 that has evolved into a generous comprehensive Student Awards Program for students of Finnish descent pursuing a post-secondary education in Canada.

The program includes scholarships for scholastic achievement by students up to the graduate level. The bursary was established to meet the financial needs of all students, including post-graduates, whether they are pursuing academic studies or vocational training.

Program funds grew from fundraisers and donations from members of the Finnish-Canadian community as well as the Melva Leppä Memorial Bursary. To sustain the program, donations are gratefully accepted at any time. Please make cheques payable to Finland House Society Scholarship Fund or donate online at CanadaHelps, a registered charity. Tax receipts are issued for donations of $25 or more.
