The Sons of Norway International Board of Directors established the Lund Fund of the Sons of Norway Foundation in 2010 as a tribute to former Chief Executive Officer, John Lund and former Legal Counsel of Sons of Norway, Allan Lund, for their combined forty years of outstanding service and dedication.
The Lund family has chosen to use this scholarship fund for study abroad experiences through accredited, post high school, educational institutions. No preference shall be given based on the country selected for the study abroad experience. Special consideration shall be given to military veterans.
“We of Norwegian heritage value education. Travel and cross cultural learning has been integral to Norway since Viking times. In our modern era we see the importance of living and studying in a foreign country as an opportunity to meet and understand peoples of different cultures that provides benefit throughout a student’s life.” – John Lund
