Scholarship aids those with no Latvian school

A new scholarship for students from communities without Latvian schools has been established at the Gaŗezers summer high school near Three Rivers, Mich.

The USD 500 scholarship, financed by a USD 10,000 endowment, was established by Kārlis and Anda Šteinmanis of Cincinnati, Ohio. Laura Šteinmane, their daughter, is among this year’s graduates of the summer high school.

The annual scholarship, announced by Kārlis Šteinmanis during the post-commencement concert at the high school, will go to a studious, continuing student who comes from a community—such as Cincinnati—where no Latvian school is present.

Andris Straumanis is a special correspondent for and a co-founder of Latvians Online. From 2000–2012 he was editor of the website.
