We believe that real changes in our environmental perspective come from grass-root individuals of the ‘next’ generation. We want to invest in these individuals. Our goal is to reinforce and motivate current and future students who will be ‘change-makers’ now and in the future, regardless of a chosen profession. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to apply below (we’ve made our application simple to encourage more applicants to apply). We currently have six $1,000 scholarships, that we will be giving away to six lucky applicants. The scholarship will be renewed every semester.
Here at Swedish Wholesale, our mission is to introduce eco-friendly and reusable products to replace the existing, wasteful habits that many consumers rely on. As part of our mission, we sponsor causes which promote sustainability and lasting changes in the daily habits of people. We hope our sustainability scholarship drives progress towards our overall mission by empowering grass-root activists, like you!
Open to All Areas of Study
It’s easy to think that that sustainability only applies to certain disciplines. However, we believe sustainability is a mindset for all future professionals, regardless of their exact career path.

Winter 2020 Scholarship Recipient
“I am a student with Semester by the Bay, a program in Homer, AK that gives students the opportunity to experience interdisciplinary courses and field studies in a wonderful community. Right now, I am interning with the North Gulf Oceanic Society, an organization dedicated to collecting long-term data to better understand Alaska resident killer whales. As an intern, my role is to assist our scientists with different cetacean acoustic projects by utilizing a variety of computer programs and equipment. This includes learning basic dialect structure for local ‘resident’ killer whale pods and applying that knowledge to quantify call variations.
In addition, I will be conducting independent research on either studying biofilm in Kachemak Bay or eDNA projects regarding Cook Inlet’s Endangered Belugas. I am very much looking forward to it!
My goal is to become an interdisciplinary conservationist, applying my skills to a variety of projects that ensure sustainable use of our planet, both terrestrial and marine.”
