World Fellowship: Sharing One of Many Success Stories

In 1967, an Icelandic girl who was finishing her studies at the University of  Iceland applied for a Fulbright Scholarship to study in the United States. She received a World Fellowship Award from Delta Kappa Gamma and was accepted to Wayne State University in Detroit. Her name is Sigrún Klara Hannesdóttir. At that time, she did not know anything about Delta Kappa Gamma just that she was told that they would be financing her studies, but later,oh yes, she learned all about our Society and more. 

In November 2017, Dr. Sigrún Klara received an invitation from the Fulbright Foundation in Iceland to attend a reception linked to their Thanksgiving dinner. People from the American Embassy also attended this celebration to honor people who had a Fulbright anniversary this year. Sigrún Klara was the oldest recipient this year because it had been 50 years since she received the scholarship. Isn´t that something! 

It is so important to understand the impact of the World Fellowship Fund. We are truly educating the world, one woman at a time. 

For more information about the work Sigrun Klara has done for the Society, check out the Member Spotlight on the homepage of the Society website.
