Scholarship recipients of Sweden House Society 2015

The Swe­den House Soci­ety (SHS) is pleased to announce the recipients of the SHS scholarships of 2015!.

The 2015 recip­i­ent of the Karl Ståhl Schol­ar­ship is Ms. Lauren Dobishok, who is graduating grade 12 of Maple Ridge Secondary today. Ms, Dobishok was chosen as the most distinguished applicant due to her very strong application and grades. She also impressed with her extensive volunteering experience, especially through her participation as a member of the Science World program “Future Leaders of Science”. Ms. Dobishok also runs a blog to educate the public on science education, named “Science Rookie“. The scholarship will support her university studies in science, which she will start this autumn at Simon Fraser University.

There were two more outstanding academic applications, both of future film makers. They were awarded as the “Sweden House Scholarship 2015”.

Nils Kimmel, grade 12 student at Burnaby South Secondary School, receives the award for his impressive record of film making. Despite just finishing grade 12 in June 2015, he has already made a number of broadcast segments, one focussing on the Art & Photography Show, organised by the Scandinavian Cultural Society in March 2015. The scholarship will support Mr. Kimmel’s studies at Capilano University, where he will commence the “Motion Picture Arts Program” in September 2015.

Katrianna Skulsky was also awarded the “Sweden House Scholarship”. Ms. Skulsky has just finished grade 12 at West Vancouver Secondary School, where she has been involved in a number of academic and athletic activities throughout her studies. Ms. Skulsky has been on the Honor Roll every year and has received Honors with distinction, with partiucular impressive results in film studies. This spring she had one of her short films featured in the Reel to Reel Film Festival in Vancouver. The scholarship will support her studies at Western University in London, Ontario, where she has been accepted into the 4-y program “Film Information Media Studies” (FIMS).

All three applicants have strong ties to the Swedish community of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, either through their own wolunteering or that of their family members. The scholarship committee selected their applications for their aca­d­e­mic achieve­ments, defined future career plans and strong vol­un­teer record. They are all excel­lent role mod­els for future schol­ar­ship can­di­dates, in that we pri­or­i­tize can­di­dates with a strong involve­ment — even pas­sion – for the local Swedish community. Ms. Skulsky and Mr. Kimmel are also past students of Swedish School at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby.
