Thanks To Scandinavia is pleased to award eight Wergeland and Holst Scholarships for participation in the summer program at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Rothberg International School.
These scholarships are awarded in memory of Henrik Wergeland and Johan Jørgen Holst. Wergeland, an early 19th century poet and thinker from Norway, defended Enlightenment thinking and pressed successfully for the legalization of Norwegian citizenship for Norwegian Jews. His efforts marked the beginnings of the Jewish community in his country. Holst, the late Norwegian Foreign Minister, led historic efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, as part of the Oslo peace process.
The eight scholarships will be awarded as follows: two in Denmark, two in Finland, two in Sweden, and two in Norway. The scholarship of $2500 US is applied toward the application fee, tuition, housing fees, and living costs. Scholarships will be awarded based on academic excellence (grades and letters of recommendation) and the relevance of the prospective course to the candidate’s professional pursuits.
