    TTS Wergerland & Holst scholarship
     The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is pleased to announce the “Thanks To Scandinavia” (TTS) Scholarships for students from the Scandinavian countries for participation in the Rothberg International School’s Summer Program 2012.
    Scholarships are awarded by the TTS Foundation in New York, in memory of Henrik Wergeland and Johan Jørgen Holst.  Wergeland, an early 19th century poet and thinker from Norway, defended Enlightenment thinking and pressed successfully for the legalization of Norwegian citizenship for Norwegian Jews. His efforts marked the beginnings of the Jewish community in his country. Holst, the late Norwegian Foreign Minister, led historic efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, as part of the Oslo peace process.
    SUMMER 2013: In 2013, eight scholarships will be awarded as follows: two in Denmark, two in Finland, two in Sweden, and two in Norway.  Applicants are eligible to receive a scholarship of $2500 US, to apply toward application, tuition and housing fees.
