2019 SynnÝve-Nordkap Post-Secondary scholarship information. SynnÝve-Nordkap Lodge offers scholarships for post-secondary education (4 year, 2 year or vocational training) to active Lodge or Junior Lodge members or the children or grandchildren of active Lodge members. The number of scholarships to be awarded as well as the amount of the award will depend upon the number of highly qualified applications received as well as the state of the Lodge's budget. Past grants have ranged from $500-$1500 with the possibility of renewal for those in good academic standing. The Lodge reserves the right to award no scholarships.

Applicants may be either current post-secondary students or high school students pursuing any course of study in the 2019-2020 school year. Preference will be given to those who have been active Junior Lodge and/or Lodge members. Previous recipients of this scholarship may apply again.
NEW! SynnÝve-Nordkap Nordic Experiences Fund. Have you always wanted to try a rosemaling class at Vesterheim? How about a cozy intergenerational family weekend at Skogfjorden, the Norwegian Concordia Language Village near Bemidji? Would you like to hear Hardanger fiddle under the pines at Nisswa Stamman? Need some extra resources to solve a genealogy puzzle that's stumped you?

Our hardworking lodge wants to help you get there.

This is a new venture borne of the realization that we've been very generous with our children and grandchildren funding camp and education scholarships, but it's also time to help Lodge members deepen their understanding and appreciation of their Nordic heritage and have some fun!

Applications will be considered based upon the strength of the proposal and previous involvement of the lodge member. We anticipate grants to be in the $200-$500 range. The Lodge reserves the right to make no awards. When possible, the Lodge will dispense funds directly to the organization affiliated with your project.
