About the North America Wales Foundation
The Foundation exists to promote education and cultural links between Wales and North America. A 501(c)3 charity founded in 1980, we provide scholarships and bursaries; host events that create awareness of historical and on-going trans-Atlantic links; continue to develop a network of people on both sides of 'the pond' to support our work; and make awards to commemorate individuals who we feel have, by personal example, furthered Welsh-American relations.
The Foundation provides scholarships, grants and bursaries to recipients whose
applications promote cultural or educational links between Wales and North America.
The majority are educational and targeted at students although there are other bursaries, for example to help musicians perform in North America. Most recently winners of the National Eisteddfod's Osborne Roberts Blue Ribband have been funded to be the featured performer at the Heritage Medallion Banquet at the North American Festival of Wales.
