SHS Scholarships

There are currently three official scholarships of the Sweden House Society (SHS):

  • The SHS Karl Ståhl Award. The purpose of this scholarship is to assist a British Columbia student with the cost of his/her post-secondary education. Value: $2,400 CDN. Deadline April 30, 2024.
  • SHS Laila Axén Award. Deadline April 30, 2024.  Value: $2,400.
  • Swedish Club of Victoria Award. Deadline April 30, 2024. Value: $2,400. The Sweden House Society takes great pride in presenting a scholarship for the year 2024, graciously provided by the now-closed Swedish Club of Victoria. Founded in 1997, the Swedish Club of Victoria had been a longstanding advocate for the spirit of Swedish culture through organizing culinary experiences, musical performances, traditional dance events and language courses. Sadly, this scholarship donation is their last heartfelt gesture of kindness, marking the culmination of their commitment to supporting cultural appreciation. For all scholarships, applicants have to demonstrate and prove a strong interest in Sweden and the Swedish community in BC. Volunteering at the Scandinavian Centre or in any of the member organizations weigh heavily in the decision made by the scholarship committee.
