The Finland House Society Scholarship Program provides annual scholarship(s) for post secondary education for full-time students of Finnish descent and who are residents of BC. For information on selection criteria and applications click here.
The Finland House Society Scholarship Program was established in 2012 under an endowment fund to provide annual scholarships for post secondary education for fulltime students of Finnish descent and who are residents of B.C. The applicant must be accepted for admission in an accredited post-secondary educational institution providing a degree or diploma or certification for its program of studies. The scholarship program will be advertised in the Scandinavian Community Centre/FHS website and in the West Coast News during the summer and fall of each year. The awards will be presented at the annual Finnish Independence Celebrations each December.
An endowment fund is like planting a tree. Endowments provide a permanent and ever increasing source of income for scholarships. The capital is held in perpetuity and invested while a portion of the interest earned is disbursed. The remaining interest is recapitalized into the endowment to preserve the value of the fund over time. As the tree grows, so does its yield of student awards. We are asking you to please consider donating to the fund directly or in memory of a loved one. Please be generous and leave a lasting legacy for future generations!
Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $25 or more. Please make your cheques payable to Finland House Society Scholarship Fund.
