New foundation for the academic traditions


Sisters Bonnie and Sandy Nilhamn have donated money to a foundation for the promotion of academic traditions at Uppsala University. The foundation will above all distribute scholarships to flag bearers.

"I have wanted to institute a scholarship for flag bearers ever since I was chairman of the flag bearers' convention during my studies at Uppsala University," says Bonnie Nilhamn, who is currently a doctoral student in archeology at the University of Helsinki.

The foundation "Sisters Bonnie and Sandy Nilhamn's Foundation for the Promotion of Academic Traditions at Uppsala University" will above all promote an active flagpole with flag bearers from all student nations and student unions affiliated with Uppsala University.

Both Bonnie and Sandy Nilhamn have been flag bearers for Norrland's nation and active in the flag bearers' convention's presidium.
