Fund Story

In 1998 Suama Niskanen Anderson established the Anderson Niskanen Scholarship Fund as a memorial to her husband, Elmer Anderson and her sister, Saima Niskanen. Both Mr. and Mrs. Anderson were long time residents of St. Louis County and pursued separate careers during their lifetimes. The Andersons and Saima Niskanen maintained strong connections to their native country of Finland. They also had a strong interest in the visual arts and combined these interests by collecting Finnish art.

Mr. and Mrs. Anderson recognized the importance of higher education and had a strong commitment to provide financial assistance to those in need.

Awards Given from Fund

Scholarships (of about $2000/year), co-payable to the student and institution will be awarded each year. Generally, this annual award is divided into two installments--half for fall, half for spring--and is renewable for four years, assuming proper academic progress (GPA of 2.5 or greater) is maintained. Depending on the availability of funds, full-time summer school attendance may be awarded if sufficient credits are earned.
