Silva Scholarships

Inner Wheel Sweden presents scholarships to healthcare education.

The Swedish Queen Silvia is very much engaged in dementia care. Her mother went demented when she grew old and the Queen then realised how important education within this healthcare sector is. She initiated a special education for nurses and assistant nurses. After having passed their exam the students are entitled to call themselves Silvia Sisters and Assistant Silvia Sisters, respectively.

For a couple of years now Inner Wheel Sweden has been engaged in an appreciated project related to these educations, and every year two students are honored with Inner Wheel scholarships.

In the picture we can see Gunilla Thorstensson, project leader, together with one of the holders of the IW scholarships, Kajsa Båkman.
