The Roth Endowment offers supplementary project funds to a grantee of the American Scandinavian Foundation planning to work in Denmark. This prize was instituted in honor of Lois Roth’s friend, Sonja Bundgard-Nielsen, long director of the Danish American Foundation. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 award has been postponed, however we look forward to presenting an award in 2021.
The 2019 award went to Cameron Turley (City University of New York). Cameron is studying Inuit settlements and their relationship to ethnogenesis in Greenland. His award will help to provide access to archival materials and local scholars, allowing him to further enrich his studies. Upon completion of his project, Cameron plans to pursue an archeological career in Greenland.
