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 (drawings for the younger grades) on a Norwegian topic. Entries are due on March 1. Winners are announced in May.

As a service to the Scandinavian community of greater Chicago, the Norwegian National League provides a comprehensive calendar of all local Scandinavian Events six times each year.

STRUCTURE:
Delegates to the NNL meet six times each year.
While the core membership is comprised of delegates from the various Norwegian organizations, it is not necessary to be a member of a club to hold membership in the Norwegian National League. Any individual interested in the Norwegian cultural heritage and who can share ideas, volunteer time or offer financial help is welcome.
