2018 District 2 Scholarship Information
Enclosed is important information regarding the scholarships offered by District 2 to its members or children or grandchildren who want to attend camp or study abroad in 2018. Because deadlines are quickly approaching, please make all of this information available to all members immediately and encourage potential applicants to get their applications in as soon as possible. The Sofie/Olson Scholarship is available for children who attend our District Two Youth camps. One scholarship is awarded to an attendee at each of our camps: Nidaros, Normanna, and Trollhaugen. Eligibility is restricted to the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews of current District Two members of Sons of Norway and been accepted to the camp of their choice. A scholarship application with guidelines will be mailed to each camper. The complicated application must be postmarked no later than April 15th, 2018. The Draxten Memorial Scholarship is awarded to many of our children attending the District Two youth camps. To be eligible, campers must have applied and been accepted to the camp of their choice AND they must have been awarded a camp scholarship from their local lodge. The Draxten Memorial Fund will grant an amount up to, but not exceeding, the amount given by the local lodge. This is a partially matching scholarship with awards generally ranging from $50 to $100. If your lodge does not have a large scholarship fund, please do not let that stop you from awarding what you can. Lodge camp scholarships have ranged from $50 - $300 in recent years. The lodge awarding the initial scholarship must notify the Youth Director of the recipient’s name and the amount given by April 30th, 2018, which means that lodges must select scholarships no later than early April, Please let the District 2 Youth Director know if you have not awarded them yet and when you will do so.
To facilitate smooth communication, please give the Youth Director the name and contact information of your lodge’s camp scholarship coordinator by January 30th, 2018.
