Scholarships/Educational Trips/Fellowship

Thanks To Scandinavia (TTS) provides dozens of scholarships to graduate students from Scandinavia and Bulgaria each year, enabling them to study the subject of their choice in the United States and Israel. Additionally, TTS annually hosts a group of 16 journalism students from the Scandinavian countries for a weeklong trip to New York to learn about multiculturalism. The trip is intended to broaden their understanding of what it means to live in a “melting pot” and how people of different faiths, cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs can not only coexist but thrive together, all the while recognizing and examining the many challenges created by such a melting pot. TTS also funds a music therapy fellowship for a Scandinavian student at the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
