SBS SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS FOR SUMMER 2022 AT THE CONCORDIA LANGUAGE VILLAGES
The Swiss Benevolent Society celebrates its 150th Anniversary in 2022 and is pleased to continue its tradition of offering scholarships to the Concordia Language Villages in northern Minnesota. This scholarship program was begun 25 years ago with the intention of helping students in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana find an opportunity to learn one of the four official languages spoken in Switzerland. We are very proud of the 395 students who have participated in this programming over the past 25 years and are convinced that the one or two weeks spent at the Language Villages have impacted the participants’ university studies, professional work and participation in community life with family and friends. To date we have paid out over $355,000 in scholarship funding and are very pleased that we can continue this tradition of co-funding scholarships with the Concordia Language Villages!
