Synnøve-Nordkap Postsecondary Scholarships
Synnøve-Nordkap Lodge offers scholarships for post-secondary education (4 year, 2 year or vocational training) to active Lodge or Junior Lodge members or to the children or grandchildren of active Lodge members.
The number of scholarships awarded each year and the amount of the award depends upon the number of highly qualified applications received as well as the state of the Lodge’s budget. Past grants have ranged from $250-$1500 with the possibility of renewal for those in good academic standing. The Lodge reserves the right to award no scholarships.

Here are some schools attended by Synnøve-Nordkap scholarship recipients since 2004. We hope to continue adding to this list. Apply above, and perhaps you will see your school choice here in the future!
Synnøve-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 adult 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.
