Scholarships

To encourage the study of Norwegian heritage the Norwegian National League has developed and administers a scholarship program open to children of Norwegian descent in grades 1-12. The students research and write a paper on the topic “Your Family’s Norwegian Heritage” (see the Scholarship Writing Guide for guidance).  The younger grades will submit a drawing on a Norwegian topic.
