Josephine and Vincent trust distributes grants.
The Ivalo & Minik Foundation, which is named after Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik's twins, sends students from Greenland abroad to study.
The Crown Prince Couple surprised everyone when their twins Josephine and Vincent, were given also Greenlandic names when they were baptized.
In Josephine's name was included Ivalo, which among other things means little sister, and in Vincent's was included Minik, which among other things can mean still, small snow.
When they are in Greenland, they are not called by their second, Greenlandic names, Ivalo and Minik, but nowthe fund has just awarded three scholarships to study abroad, writes the Greenlandic media Sermitsiaq.
The three lucky recipients are Hans Peder Kirkegaard and Melisa Larsen, who each received a scholarship to study in the US and Majken Djurhuus Poulsen who have received a scholarship to study in London.
The purpose of the Ivalo & Minik Foundation is to award scholarships to students in Greenland who want to take up an international higher education or international educational courses, including an internship in a company or organization.
The scholarships are funded based on donations from Royal Arctic Line A/S, Royal Greenland A/S, Greenland's Trade and NunaFonden. the foundation, has worked since 2012, the year after the twins were born and baptized.
