In the name of all members of the Foundation Board, I would like to express you our warmest welcome to our website.

At the moment the main area of activity of the Foundation is the attribution of scholarships to students from the province of Nova Scotia. In the long term, however, we will seek to develop our activities in Nova Scotia in  additional areas. For a general introduction to the Foundation, the pages about the origin and the goals of the Foundation might be of interest.

For more detailed information or for any questions, feel free to contact us at any time.

With my best regards,

Nicolas Burckhardt
