Idun Lodge Annual Scandinavian Scholarship Recipent
Lydia Taylor, received the Sons of Norway Idun Lodge Annual Scandinavian Scholarship last spring, which allowed her to study abroad in the Norway International Summer School at the University in Oslo.
Lydia is a senior at UW Madison, majoring in psychology and getting a certificate in Scandinavian Studies. She grew up in Lake City, MN, with her parents and younger sister, Alice. She comes from a family that has both Norwegian and Swedish heritage, and has always felt a strong connection. She hopes to help preserve the Scandinavian American culture, may that be through future jobs or volunteer work.
Idun Lodge's Annual Scandinavian Scholarship... We give out one scholarship each year to a student chosen from the Department of German, Nordic and Slavic at UW-Madison (awarded at our Syttende Mai banquet). This student will attend one of the Department's study programs in Norway (either a semester or the summer session in Oslo).
