Finnish Partner Organization Scholarship

A $100 scholarship is available to anyone who is sponsored by a Finnish Partner Organization in the United States or Canada and is registered for a Salolampi summer residential session. With a financial contribution from that organization, the Salolampi Foundation will match that contribution for a total possible award of $150. Villagers may apply through multiple Partner Organizations. Any established organization that promotes Finnish language, heritage, or cultural awareness may sponsor villagers.
